Mount Sinai Puts New AI Department at the Center of Patient Care

Mount Sinai Puts New AI Department at the Center of Patient Care. Mount Sinai signs on one of their facilities.Building on the foundation it laid in 2019 with its Digital Institute for Health, the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai Health in New York City has launched the department of artificial intelligence and human health. Candidates for the program will work alongside computer scientists who build artificial intelligence (AI) systems and physicians who use AI in their daily activities.

The department’s overarching goal will be to impact patients’ health positively using AI. This will be done by building AI systems at scale from data representing Mount Sinai’s diverse patient population. The systems will work seamlessly across all hospitals and care units to support physicians, foster research and improve patients' care and well-being.

Earlier this year, Icahn Mount Sinai announced it would offer a new PhD concentration in AI and emerging technologies in medicine as part of its doctorate in biomedical sciences program starting in fall 2022. The program will train future scientists in cutting-edge technologies, including AI, medical devices, robotic machines and sensors.
