Very nice overview of a very complex topic. Somewhat superficial in some areas, but this is an introduction class and covered everything to an acceptable degree. A very intimidating topic.
Nice bite sized pieces, with relevant application to querying hospital database using (pre-requisite knowledge) of SQL and R-prog. Definitely useful for my speciality and line of work.
It was well structured/taught as online course

This course is a great intro to Clinical Data Science. I found some spelling/grammatical errors in the readings/quizzes. Also, I struggled a bit with some of the answers/writing the correct code; in these rare instances, I would look at the hint after and have no idea how I was supposed to know that. For example, I was having trouble mutating a column, and it turns out I was supposed to use the collect() function before mutation(). I don't mind googling and figuring things out on my own; in fact, it is a critical skill for an analyst, but in an educational format, I wish they had brought up these functions in the reading.

There's something you should know before starting the course:
It is a very good entry-level resource if you want to have a basic understanding of the clinical systems and data sources. If you have no experience in SQL, it will give you good instruction to understand some basic queries.
However, this course requires you to have a foundation in R programming and will not provide much guidance to it. It will be kind of hard to do the tests without some basics.
Make good use of the sample data this course provides!

Overall very good. The instructor was clear and lectures were great. The introduction to R and Tidyverse was a little challenging in a reading format...if I had not had experience programming in SAS (limited albeit), I probably wouldn't have made it through the 4th module without additional resources. This is a lot of information and overall it was well organized, I'm really not sure how I would present it any differently.

A good start to fundamentals of clinical data science. It lays the foundation for more advanced topics. The MIMIC3 data is an excellent example of real life like health data. The quiz assignments are of very good standard. You will need to work out thoroughly to pass them.

Some material is inconsistent between the lectures and quizzes. Syntax of BigQuery does allow distinct queries, which was stated otherwise in the course material. Overall the content was good and was a nice introduction to the MIMICIII dataset.

A good introduction to clinical data science course and useful for those who wants to tap into the field. However, prior knowledge of R is required as some concepts/functions are not fully explained in the course.

I really enjoyed everything in this class, I really loved it. It was an accumulation of new skills all along, almost everything was new to me: Google BigQuery, SQL, R language etc. Thank you for this opportunity!

The course is great overall. But when it comes to teaching SQL and R, there is too much to learn with just a few explanation. It is not easy for those who do not have background knowledge on those.
