ONLINE TRAINING MODULES
The Carolina Health Informatics Program (CHIP) has developed a few online training modules called An Introduction to Data Science through a health care lens to expose learners to the field of data science. These online modules are accessible to anyone who is interested, and require no prior training or knowledge in data science. If you complete the entire set of modules – the entire “short course” – and successfully pass a simple final assessment, you will receive a certificate of completion.

Introduction Data Science Project
The projects below are intended to be completed once you have successfully finished all modules for each curriculum track. These project will give you the chance to apply the skills you have learned in the modules to real healthcare datasets.
Text Mining Project
Use your skills to analyze text and produce relevant insights. Possible dataset topics include drug reviews, health news, COVID-19 tweets, and conversational search.
Data Mining Project
Use your skills to analyze a healthcare dataset and produce relevant insights. Possible dataset topics include stroke, diabetes, and heart disease prediction.
To receive a certificate of completion, please complete the final quiz. The quiz comprises of questions from all the text mining and data mining modules. Please complete the final quiz only after you have completed all the modules. You will receive the final score after we have finished reviewing your answers.
