One course will engage medical executives, promoting the benefits AI and big data can have for the medical community including hospitals.  The second course is designed for those with no prior knowledge in big data and AI, providing accessible and engaging training for the rapid up-skilling of healthcare leaders, clinicians, researchers and scientists in big data and AI. 

Presented by a suite of experts from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), and a number of national and international program partners, these training courses will provide a key opportunity for people working in the Australian healthcare sector who are interested to know more about using AI tools at work. 

The program also includes a two-day national Datathon to be delivered at the conclusion of the training course. Multidisciplinary teams from around Australia will come together to solve a real-world problem by analysing healthcare data with support from technical experts. 

IntelliHQ General Manager, Dr Stephanie Chaousis, said IntelliHQ was pleased to be selected by MTPConnect as the Program Facilitator to develop and promote the two targeted training programs. 

“These programs will raise awareness for senior hospital and health staff on the benefits of big data in healthcare, while assisting clinicians, researchers, nurses and scientists to develop foundation skills in big data and artificial intelligence.”

“The aim of this program is for participants to gain an understanding of the opportunities for data and AI in the medical technology, biotechnology and pharmaceutical (MTP) sector. We are working closely with a number of national and international partners to deliver a program that offers the core training and skills clinicians and researchers can apply to real-life situations, in any Australian hospital or health organisation,” Dr Chaousis said.
