1. Windreich Department of Artificial Intelligence and Human Health


At the Windreich Department of Artificial Intelligence and Human Health at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, education is one of our top priorities. We collaborate closely with the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences and the Medical Education Program at Icahn Mount Sinai to deliver cutting-edge curricula centered on artificial intelligence technologies in health care, large-scale machine learning, robotic machines, and digital health.

In collaboration with the Graduate School, the Department supports the Artificial Intelligence and Emerging Technologies in Medicine concentration of the PhD Program in Biomedical Sciences. This concentration trains students in artificial intelligence technology and machine learning, with the goal of eventually paving the way to new treatment options for patients through AI-enhanced biomedical research.

Our ongoing partnership with Icahn Mount Sinai leadership has also led to artificial intelligence courses being incorporated into the broader Graduate School curriculum and Medical Education curriculum.

Meetings and Conferences

Beyond our educational programs, we anticipate providing a variety of regular events to foster a greater understanding of artificial intelligence. These include:

  • The AI and Human Health Seminar Series, featuring guest lecturers, and available to all Icahn Mount Sinai students.
  • The AI and Human Health Journal Club, a weekly meeting where students present scientific publications.
  • The New Wave of AI in Healthcare Conference, an annual two-day event that gathers experts in machine learning, medicine, and other related fields. Co-hosted with the New York Academy of Sciences, the Department serves as the scientific host. The Conference offers students the opportunity to participate in the poster session, connect with researchers from around the world, and learn about the latest innovations and developments in the field.
