Health and Medicine

UBC Extended Learning collaborates with UBC Faculties to deliver innovative courses and programs in health administration, regulatory affairs and science communication. 

  • Health Analytics  
    Data analytics has the power to transform the health care sector for both patients and practitioners. A growth area in the field, health data analytics can lead to improved, more efficient health care delivery and better patient outcomes. Machine-learning algorithms can generate new insights and AI augmentation can support automation of routine tasks and clinical decision-making. 

    As health systems worldwide boost investment in data analytics infrastructure, there is a growing need for health care professionals with data analytics proficiency and data literacy. Addressing this skills gap is crucial to realizing the potential of data analytics in health care.  

    Courses developed and delivered by the UBC Department of Medicine and UBC Data Science Institute.  
  • Indigenous Health Administration and Leadership  
    The UBC Extended Learning Certificate in Indigenous Health Administration and Leadership is a program designed to support Indigenous organizations and communities to build strengths-based, holistic programming that promotes health and wellbeing.  This program is offered in partnership with the UBC Centre for Excellence in Indigenous Health and UBC Extended Learning.  
  • Regulatory Affairs  
    British Columbia has one of the fastest growing life sciences sectors in the country. Hindering this growth, however, is the lack of workers with expertise and training in regulatory affairs. Regulatory affairs professionals play a critical role in bringing health products to market, and those skilled in interpreting and administering complex health laws and regulations are in demand. Gain a well-rounded, foundational understanding of Canadian and global regulatory systems, processes and stakeholders.
  • Science Communication  
    Science communication is about taking complex science, health and medical ideas, and creating accurate and effective communications that inform, educate and engage audiences.  Learn how to create accurate science, health and medical communications with educators and pioneers in biomedical visualization and communication, interactive design, human-centered design, medicine, graphic and visual arts, and other specialties.
