SQL Database Management Software Edinburgh
Database systems are increasingly being used for working with medical data and enable the rapid querying of complex data in health and social care.
This short course will introduce the theory behind the relational data model and enable participants to gain an understanding on how data can be modelled and stored in a relational database system and what different data types are used.
Through a series of practical-driven sessions using real-life data, students will learn how to load existing data in a contemporary relational database management system and how to craft simple and complex queries for analysing the data. By the end of the course, students will be able to load, format and export data in a format suitable for analysis by common statistical packages.
Course suitable for epidemiologists, medical statisticians and other researchers working with electronic health records data.
