Clinical Data Science 101
    Session Overview: This on-demand webinar is demystifying what Clinical Data Science is. It provides the official SCDM position on Clinical Data Science by diving into core concepts and most recent supporting regulations. Tune in to catch up with the latest industry trends for clinical data experts.

    As CDM professionals embark on their journey towards Clinical Data Science (CDS), it is crucial to understand what CDS is and what it is NOT. Only then you will be able to assess its impact on you and your organization.

    Without being clear on the industry, technology and regulatory forces driving this evolution, it would be difficult if not impossible to know where to start and where to go.

    The main objective of this on-demand webinar is to learn core concepts and gain foundational knowledge on what Clinical Data Science is. As we embark on the journey towards CDS, it is crucial to know the industry, technology and regulatory forces driving this evolution.

    This on-demand webinar is also the first SCDM training material supporting our upcoming certification program for clinical data scientists.
