Data Augmented Technology Assisted Medical Decision Making


Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) have the potential to increase diagnostic accuracy, decrease diagnostic errors, and improve patient outcomes. The Data Augmented, Technology Assisted Medical Decision Making (DATA-MD) course will teach you how to use AI to augment your diagnostic decision-making. The National Academy of Medicine (NAM) recommends ensuring that clinicians can effectively use technology - including AI - to improve the diagnostic process. To use these technologies effectively in your clinical practice, you will need to determine when use of AI is appropriate, interpret the outputs of AI, read medical literature about AI, and explain to patients the role that AI plays in their care. In this course, you’ll explore the ethical considerations and potential biases when making medical decisions informed by AI/ML-based technologies. DATA-MD is a one of a kind curriculum designed to provide an introduction to the use of AI in the diagnostic process.

This course was created with the needs of medical students, residents, fellows, practicing physicians, advanced practice providers, and registered nurses in mind. Others, like educators, computer programmers, and data scientists, may also find value in the course.
