AI Fundamentals is a one-day virtual event that will provide clinicians with the tools needed to understand Artificial Intelligence in healthcare. It is designed by the RSM’s Digital Health Council, which has developed a strong reputation for delivering high-quality AI events over the past three years.

The course is tailored for clinicians of all grades with little to no experience of artificial intelligence or machine learning and looking for an accessible introduction to the topic. It will be delivered by a faculty of experts that will guide attendees through five high yield domains all clinicians should be familiar with.  

This webinar will provide clinicians with a cohesive primer on AI in healthcare delivered by an expert faculty. By the end of the course, attendees will be able to:  

  •  Describe common applications of AI in healthcare  
  •  Explain the key steps in the validation of AI models   
  •  Confidently appraise and analyse AI-based research   
  •  Identify the ethical and technical barriers to developing AI models   
  •  Discuss some of the legal and regulatory aspects of AI in healthcare
