Nexus Summit 2023 Seminar Showcase: Exploring the Future of AI Within Health Professions Education
The Nexus Summit Seminar Showcase is a free webinar series from the National Center for Interprofessional Practice and Education. The seminar showcase features the highest rated peer-reviewed seminars offered during last year’s annual conference, the Nexus Summit 2023, and covers topics ranging from artificial intelligence (AI), longitudinal assessment strategies, team well-being, health equity, multi-institutional models, and interprofessional advocacy, among others. Offered between March - July 2024, the Nexus Summit Seminar Showcase will provide an opportunity to learn from, with, and about the work being done to improve practice, education and health for those we serve.
At a recent workshop run by the National Academies’ Global Forum on Innovation in Health Professional Education (HPE), educators and practitioners with varying levels of understanding of artificial intelligence (AI), gathered to listen to and learn from those with experience in applying AI in HPE. Discussions were based on a framework proposed by Lomis et al. (2021) that emphasized collective action of educators across professions to implement and optimize the use of AI while mitigating unintended consequences. This discussion, and the wisdom drawn from the audience’s questions and comments, laid a foundation for next steps in following a roadmap for leveraging AI in classrooms and clinics. A proposed 60-minute skill-building seminar would introduce knowledge and skills that are immediately actionable for educating health professionals and their learners on critical issues to consider in relation to AI.
Topics to be explored in this seminar would include:
- AI involvement and transparency in diagnosis and treatment planning
- Addressing public mistrust of AI through community education
- Integration of AI into healthcare education and competencies
- Ensuring global participation and equity in AI integration
- AI applications in clinical education, mental health, and disaster response and potential disruptions to medical specialties
