Applications for the NIHR Health Service Modelling Associates (HSMA) 6 programme are now open!

This free, 15-month course teaches people based in non-commercial health, social care, policing, or related organisations within England how to use Operational Research and Data Science techniques to improve services and aid decision making. It is the first course to be accredited by the Association of Professional Healthcare Analysts (AphA).

Open to operational service managers, clinical leads, junior doctors, QI leads, analysts and many more…

The course is offered free of charge, although a time commitment of one day a week for the full programme is required. All code in the course is in Python, though we use some other open-source software too – but no prior experience with Python (or any programming experience at all!) is required.

Applications close on 4th March 2024 at 23:59. 

The application pack can be found here :, or email to request one.
