Why study Technologies and Analytics in Precision Medicine with Industry at RCSI?
The health sector is facing into a new era as it looks to incorporate the areas of data science, omics, bioinformatics, computational biology, artificial intelligence and machine-learning to create a future of ‘connected healthcare’.
We are seeing disruption to existing models of healthcare delivery, coupled with increasing demand for healthcare access, an ageing population and the associated cost challenges, all of which have led to an increased focus on preventative medicine and tailored therapies for individual patients. The fusion of digital technology with traditional science will shape the future of healthcare not only in Ireland, but on a global scale as our world adapts.
With this, there is a need for a skilled and educated workforce that is focused on emerging and future healthcare technologies and who can deliver through multi-disciplinary and collaborative approaches. This innovative programme aims to equip this talent pool to address these emerging skills gaps and enable future growth in healthcare and the bio-pharmaceutical industry.
Alongside addressing the skills gap, this two-year MSc programme also offers students the unique opportunity to apply the practical skills and theory learnt on the programme to real-life projects with our industry partners. The programme also supports students to establish industry network connections and create further career prospects.
This programme was developed in collaboration with leading industry partners and the overall project has been supported by the Higher Education Authority under the Human Capital Initiative, Pillar 3. Grant agreement: 17796884, 'Enabling Future Pharma'.
