Transformative Digital Skills for Healthcare

A training programme for healthcare professionals in Europe

Digital innovations are revolutionising healthcare. From clinicians to hospital managers, healthcare professionals need to be able to innovate, adapt and engage with new technologies and the changing pace of medicine. Our programme enables you to lead projects and apply digital technologies in the health and care sectors.

Participants will gain an understanding of emerging digital technologies; how to transform processes, structures and cultures; and measure the value and benefit of these technologies in patient care.

A European team of leading experts in digital technologies and learning design have come together to create a programme that is innovative, interdisciplinary, and impactful; providing technical knowledge and transferrable skills.

Our blended-learning structure allows participants to select an individual pathway to acquire the specific skills they require, with a time investment of 10 to 12 hours over a ten-week period.  Our “Digital Health Concepts” module provides a broad introduction to the programme content from which you can select the most applicable modules. 40% of the course content is delivered online, including dynamic content and live webinars; 40% takes place through in-person sessions in Germany, Spain and the United Kingdom and 20% requires individual project work.

The programme is funded by EIT Health, a network of best-in-class health innovators backed by the EU. EIT Health is a Knowledge and Innovation Community (KIC) of the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT), an independent body of the European Union. The content has been developed by three partner organisations: Fraunhofer, Europe’s leading application-oriented research organization; Universitat de Barcelona, listed as the best university in Spain in the QS World University Rankings of 2018; and TheHill, the digital innovation team of Oxford University Hospitals NHS Trust, one of the UK’s largest teaching hospitals and one of the largest hospitals in Europe.
