Welcome to the BWSI Medlytics online course! Here are the topics we will be covering:
- Introduction to Working with Medical Data
- Coding Primer: Python, Git, and Jupyter*
- Probability and Statistics
- Machine Learning
There are a total of 5 modules covering the above topics. Each module should take about 4-6 hours to complete. At the end of each module we will ask you to report the approximate amount of time it took you to complete, and we will use this data to adjust the curriculum for future students.
The coding primer on Python and Jupyter is being offered as a separate course this time around. Please register for BWSI Python Core Module (BWSI 212). You are welcome to do the core Python course in parallel but we advise that you get some familiarity with it prior to Week 2. The Git module is also being offered as a separate class - Version Control: Git and Github (BWSI 122). We advise that you complete this prior to Week 4.
If you are planning to apply to the summer program, only the first 3 modules
must be completed before applications for summer are due. If you are accepted to the summer program, you are required
to complete the entire online course. Your acceptance will be conditional on you successfully completing the course
Good luck and enjoy the course!
