Become an Analytics Leader

Johns Hopkins Medicine LEADS (Leadership in Analytics and Data Science) is a data stewardship leadership program for analysts hosted by the Technology Innovation Center in partnership with the Johns Hopkins Medicine Data Trust.

Participants benefit from weekly lectures and workshops that build knowledge in theories and methodologies related to health care data compilation, analysis and utilization.
