Calling all health-care students! Want to have a say on the future of Artificial Intelligence in healthcare education?

The Artificial Intelligence Medical Student Society (AIMSS) has recently received a CFMS grant (in collaboration with other Canadian universities) to develop and incorporate educational material on medical AI into health-care curricula. As a first step, UBC colleagues have developed a national opinion survey with ethics approval.

Complete this four-minute survey before May 31, 2021 and you'd also have a chance to win one of 50 $20 gift cards!

Join the Artificial Intelligence in Medicine Student Society(AIMSS)

AIMSS is a newly formed organization run by students representing various departments from the faculties of Engineering, Medicine, Science, as well as others. Their goal is to facilitate discussion and learning with regard to the role artificial intelligence plays in medical research and clinical practice and how one can become more involved in this exciting and emerging field.

AIMSS hosts a monthly talk from experts in the field in a relaxed environment with refreshments and aim to arrange computer science workshops related to the medical field later on in the academic year in addition to a symposium.
