Digital Health Essentials


Micro Credential Training Course

The University of Sydney has developed a unique training course to support health professionals in their engagement with Digital Health; "Digital Health Essentials".

This micro-credential training course will enable participants to position themselves for the future by participating in a purpose-built collaborative and team-based learning experience that will provide insight into how telehealth and virtual care can reshape models of healthcare.

At the end of the course all participants will receive:

  • A Digital Health Essentials micro-credential badge
  • Credits toward University of Sydney postgraduate studies (subject to satisfactory assessment and approvals)

The learning outcomes
This remote learning course has been designed by Dr. Audrey P Wang, a Senior Lecturer in Digital Health at the University of Sydney, to demonstrate how new and emerging technologies can enhance clinical decision making and change clinical outcomes.

By involving a large cohort of digital health industry leaders as collaborators and presenters, all participants will receive detailed evidence-based insights into how technologies such as video, wearable devices, smartphone apps, virtual reality programs, artificial intelligence and data analytics are shaping the future of care models.

At the end of the 6-week collaborative remote learning process all participants will gain insights into the design, implementation, utilisation and optimisation of a telehealth platform from a clinical, technology and ethics perspective.

Participation details
Participants must be health professionals working in clinical practice or people working in health management or IT professionals interested in understanding the challenges facing clinicians in digital health solutions.

For the 6-week course period the participants will be provided with access to the University of Sydney’s Canvas learning management system to access the self-paced learning materials. In addition, participants will engage with University of Sydney staff and their fellow students via Zoom for live on-line classes and collaborative workgroup sessions.

The study commitment is an average of 8.5 hours per week over six weeks (approximately 50 hours in total) plus a pre-course orientation week.

Assessment will be through a combination of regular online quizzes, reflective posts, and a final multi-media and written assessment task.
