Course description

Artificial Intelligence in Health Care

Earn an official certificate of professional achievement from Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Improving prediction is one of the key challenges the medical industry faces in advancing patient care. Enhancing diagnosis, individualizing treatments, and understanding disease progression are all matters of prediction, an area where machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) excels.

Discover the impact AI innovations can have in medicine — on both traditional health care systems and decision-making approaches — with the Artificial Intelligence in Health Care online short course from the MIT Sloan School of Management and the MIT J-Clinic.

Through industry case studies, you’ll better understand AI’s applications and limitations, examine the challenges AI can help overcome, and explore how it’s already been successfully deployed in the sector.

You’ll gain insight and knowledge from MIT, an institution renowned for developing ML methods with applications in health care. Regina Barzilay, your Faculty Director, is also globally recognized for her work in AI and breast cancer detection.
