Tailored educational courses will additionally target C-suite and operational staff on AI in public health leadership topics.

The Global AI Healthcare Academy aims to enhance the healthcare sector’s AI capabilities beyond education. Through collaboration with MBZUAI’s newly established Institute of Digital Public Health, the Academy will include research and innovation, pushing the boundaries of knowledge and fostering groundbreaking discoveries. These efforts will encourage public-private partnerships, securing ample funding, and ensuring ongoing sustainability.
