Artificial intelligence (AI) and medical robotics are revolutionising the entire medical field, changing the way the data is used to make decisions, analysing big data, and use of robots for surgeries. To stay competitive, universities and organizations need qualified AI researchers with knowledge and understanding of AI and robotics who use cutting-edge methods like machine learning algorithms and image-guided robotics. This 16-week Specialization is designed to equip you with the knowledge you need to apply AI in medicine and robotics research. It will train to you perform research in an international research environment. 


Through the virtual internship programme, you’ll gain the essential knowledge and skills required to implement AI in medical research. This Specialization aims to provide knowledge of AI and robotics applications in medicine and healthcare.


Course Content


The online distance-learning delivery of the course will provide opportunities to receive expertise from the Cambridge Centre for Innovation and Development (CamCID) researchers, material from our partners, and guest lectures. This specialization includes two Professional Certificates (PCerts), 4 -week Researchers Training Programme, and a virtual internship.


Part 1: PCert - Artificial Intelligence in Medicine (4 modules)

This 4-week PCert course is designed to equip you with the knowledge you need to apply AI in medicine. You will learn about the history of AI and the components of machine learning.


Further details are mentioned on PCert - AI in Medicine page.


Part 2: PCert - Medical Robotics (4 modules)

Get the knowledge you need to apply robotics in medicine and healthcare. This PCert aims to provide knowledge of robots for surgeries, image-guided intervention, and computer-assisted surgery and therapy.


Further details are mentioned on PCert - Medical Robotics page.


Part 3: Researchers Training Programme (4 weeks)

This unique 4-week online training programme is designed to equip you with the knowledge you need to succeed in your career as a researcher in the AI field.


Further details are mentioned on the Researchers Training Programme page.


Part 4: Research Training - Virtual Internship (4 weeks)

This 4 weeks of virtual training will provide you with a learning opportunity from researchers at CamCID. It will provide you opportunities to gain research skills with weekly research-based tasks and guidance during the tasks. You will participate in research activities (tasks and analysis) remotely and apply your knowledge of AI in medicine research.


Further details are mentioned on the Internship - AI in Medicine page.


Fees and Funding


UK and International: £419 (including electronic certificate and internship).


Reduced fee option:
