Delivering education and training
With partners, we have started to curate an online catalogue of education and training resources for the health and care workforce available on the Digital Academy Learning Hub.
We will also be using the evidence from our horizon scanning work alongside the capability framework to understand where to focus our efforts in developing the current and future workforce to embrace AI and digital healthcare technologies through curricula, and further education and training materials and opportunities.
Fellows in Clinical Artificial Intelligence (AI)
Clinicians with expertise in Artificial Intelligence are essential to the rollout of AI software in hospitals. In order to fully realise the UK government's goal of being a global AI superpower, the NHS must provide dedicated training for clinicians in cutting-edge skills required for clinical AI deployment (as recommended in The Topol Review). To date there has been no formal or systematic route to acquire skills in clinical AI deployment.
This fellowship addresses this training need. It is a year-long programme (Cohort 1: June 2022-June 2023) which is integrated part-time alongside the medical training of doctors approaching consultancy. Fellows undertake immersive AI projects in live hospital workflows, supervised by world experts in clinical AI.
Fellows will gain further skills and knowledge from a programme of teaching aligned with the Clinical AI Curriculum developed by Guy's and St Thomas' Department of Medical Physics.
This ground-breaking fellowship was created by the London AI Centre and supported by Health Education England.
