TCPS2 CORE 2022 Training

The Visual and Automated Disease Analytics (VADA) graduate training program is a joint initiative between the University of Manitoba and University of Victoria. 

The (VADA) program trains health, health informatics, and computational science graduate students to translate complex health data into insights that can be used to improve the health of populations and support health care decision-making.
