How to - Beginner to OHDSI


I am a beginner to this OHDSI. Can I know what sort of skills does one require to make the data available at my end suitable for analysis/research collaboration? Is there any step-step guide that lists out what has to be done and how it can be done

I recently graduated and working in research under public health domain. We are planning to make use of our data and make it ready for analysis/ create some meaning out of our existing data

Apologies, if my question is very basic. We don’t have many people who can guide us



Mostly SQL. Folks are working on the step-by-step here. But instead of issuing a general call for help (which I am empathetic of), you better ask concrete questions here in the Forum. The more concrete, the more likely somebody will answer.

Keep it coming. :slight_smile:


Hi Selva,

I’m a newbie as well. @MauraBeaton recently posted the Weekly Digest yesterday, which contains some fantastic information and resources, including the following tutorials:
