Artificial Intelligence and Academic Medicine

The landscape of artificial intelligence (AI) is quickly evolving. Advances in this technology have led to new opportunities as well as questions and challenges around best practices and ethical use. 

Medical schools and academic health systems across the country are making concerted efforts to integrate AI into education, clinical delivery and practice, and biomedical research. The AAMC is supporting its member institutions as they determine their individual approaches to this new technology, in navigating the initiation, planning, and implementation of any AI tools, and in monitoring the policy and regulatory environment. 

Below is an overview of the AAMC’s work as well as opportunities for you to connect with your peers, share your experiences, and learn from experts.
