This unique multidisciplinary PhD programme brings together students from health and life sciences, computer science, design and engineering.
Join the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Digital Health and Care to become part of a new generation of innovators involved in building and developing apps, wearables, smart homes and other digital technologies. Together, these technologies are helping to support health professionals in their decision-making and empowering patients in managing their own health conditions.
The Digital Health and Care programme is offered by University of Bristol .
The digital health industry is one of the fastest growing, both internationally and in the UK, with current estimates indicating that the sector is increasing at a rate of 15 per cent each year. Driven by the health needs of ageing populations in countries such as the UK, France, Germany, China, Singapore, Japan and the US, this growth is expected to continue for decades to come.
Exciting career opportunities to develop new digitally-enabled, personalised health solutions therefore exist within academia, the charitable sector and health providers in many different countries (e.g. the UK’s NHS), as well as myriad companies that have active health research and development programs (such as Apple, Google, Amazon, Sony, Microsoft, Samsung, Huawei, Arm and many others).
