Our Students Say...
"The course was well structured. [...] It was an excellent course and a good refresher for me, as it has been 5 years since I've done data analysis. A number of course assignments required me to pair with a fellow student and undergo peer review of one another's code. It was interesting to see how my peer structured their code to produce their dataset. I enjoyed and learned a lot from this exchange. The flexibility of distance learning meant that it was possible to complete work at my own pace and schedule. It was also helpful to learn from students in different locations, who worked in related fields but had different strengths, skills and perspectives. Finally, this course gave me experience working with administrative datasets and tools that can be difficult to access on the job. The opportunity to work with samples of real data exposed me to some of the challenges I could face at work in learning, cleaning, formatting and analyzing the data. I would highly recommend this course and the PHDA program to my colleagues. It's a well structured and organized program and provides a good theoretical and practical approach to population health data analysis." Esther Parker, Senior Policy Analyst, BC Ministry of Health
