Digital Health Curriculum

Understanding and using digital healthcare and data science is integral to the practice of medicine. To ensure Northwestern medical students graduate with the knowledge and experience they will need, David Liebovitz, MD, co-director of I.AIM’s Center for Medical Education in Digital Healthcare and Data Science,and Mahesh Vaidyanathan, MD, MBA, assistant professor of Anesthesiology, have developed a new component of the medical education curriculum.  

Students learn how to incorporate data, machine learning, and other tools into their practice in order to personalize patient care and improve outcomes. Mastering core competencies of the curriculum ensure students gain a solid foundation that can ultimately have a positive impact on healthcare systems. Read more about the curriculum
