AI for Healthcare: Equipping the workforce for digital transformation

11 February 2020

Health Education England has worked with the University of Manchester to develop a free online course that aims to explore the benefits and challenges of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in healthcare through real-world case studies in areas such as radiology and pathology.


The new five-week course, aimed at healthcare staff, reveals how AI is transforming healthcare in a variety of beneficial ways, from streamlining workflow processes to making more precise patient diagnoses.


Topics include:


• Week 1: Motivating AI in Healthcare

• Week 2: What is Artificial Intelligence 

• Week 3: Data in Healthcare

• Week 4: Making it Work

• Week 5: Supporting and Skilling the Workforce


As a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC), learning takes place remotely and can be completed at any time to suit the learner.


Dr Neil Ralph, Head of Technology Enhanced Learning, Health Education England, said: “At a time when health and care are changing rapidly due to advances in technology, we think this course is a really valuable addition to our suite of learning.”
