Students should be interested in the multi‐disciplinary field of Digital Health at the intersection of health economics, information systems research, computer science, and behavioral medicine. Attendance of the Digital Health course (7,800) is advantageous but not required.
Please note that you need to set up a mobile application development environment and a smartphone emulator (i.e., React Native in combination with either Android Studio for Windows, Mac, or Linux or XCode for Mac). You will get detailed instructions for the installation and usage of that software. Programming skills may be helpful but are not a requirement in this course.
Moreover, your personal computer must meet the following requirements: (a) Windows 7/8/10 (64‐bit), (b) MacOS 10.14.4 or higher, or (c) Linux GNOME or KDE desktop 64‐bit distribution capable of running 32-bit applications GNU C Library (glibc) 2.19 or later. For each setup, 12 GB of available disk space, a minimum of 4 GB RAM (8 GB RAM recommended), and a 13” display (15” or larger recommended) are required.
Finally, a smartphone with either iOS 12 (or higher) or Android Version 8 (or higher) is required to test the digital health interventions of the course participants.
