This course covers the foundations and applications of data science for medical decision making using predictive modeling. Computational Medicine (CM) is an emerging discipline that seeks to: develop mechanistic computational models of disease; methods for personalizing these models using data measured from individual patients; and applying these personalized models to improve the diagnosis and treatment of disease.
Learn from faculty members in the Johns Hopkins Institute for Computational Medicine (ICM), who believe that CM offers one pathway to precision medicine. They are committed to training the next generation of scientists, engineers, and physicians in this approach, and doing this across all educational levels.
Class time includes lectures and tutorials covering the physiology, medicine, and engineering principles relevant to case studies that will be presented at the end of the course.
By the end of this course, you will be able to:
Helpful to have background in probability and statistics.
Programming background is a plus, but not required.
