Convergence Is Here! How Can Life Sciences & Healthcare Accelerate Hiring Of Data Science Talent?A panel of experts will provide examples of programs in place now, such as academic-industry consortiums, specialized internships, and other means to drive awareness among data science students of the tremendous opportunity that awaits them in the life sciences and healthcare fields. Panelists will outline the type of career opportunities available today and where they see demand moving to in the future. They will give examples of the specific data skills sought in candidates and the educational degrees most preferred. We’ll end with an open discussion of other ideas to fulfill the convergence skills gap and what we need to do to boost existing programs.
