Today and tomorrow: preparing for our digital future

10.50 – Thursday 5th July


What do advances in artificial intelligence (AI), digital medicine and genomics mean for clinical roles and functions? What are the implications for the selection, education and training of healthcare staff? As Topol Review Programme Manager, Sue Lacey Bryant is managing a fast-paced independent technology review commissioned by the Secretary of State for Health and Care to address these questions. Led by Dr Eric Topol, Scripps Research Institute, the review is facilitated by Health Education England. This exciting work invites obvious questions that this presentation will consider: What does AI and automation mean for the future of our profession in a digital world? How shall we prepare?
