From these fundamentals, they will then be provided with an overview of the current AI in healthcare landscape, the major domains where AI is being applied, and finally a workable approach to drive the AI application and adoption in the workplace.

With an understanding of AI and its application, participants will have the basic skills and knowledge to allow them to identify opportunities to improve the health outcomes of their patients through AI. This course will also provide participants with a solid foundation to allow them to further develop their AI skillset over the course of their training and careers.
