ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE moving medicine forward
The University of Florida is making artificial intelligence the centerpiece of a major, long-term initiative that is combining world-class research infrastructure, leading-edge research and a transformational approach to curriculum. At the College of Medicine, clinician-scientists are developing AI-enabled systems to guide perioperative and acute care decision-making, data scientists are working to solve big data problems to spur data-driven medicine and basic scientists are advancing AI-enhanced methods for analyzing molecular data — all to answer questions that will drive us to improve health outcomes and patient care.
Fueling the future
While the College of Medicine’s clinicians and researchers are pioneering the use of AI in the medical field, learners and trainees are taking a deep dive into one of the nation’s first curriculums at the intersection of AI and medical education. The series of interactive online courses leverage animations and videos to teach medical students and clinicians how AI can improve medicine. Distinctive in both content and approach, these courses put UF at the forefront of AI in medical learning. The courses are also eligible for CME credit.
The UF College of Medicine has received $10 million annually in state appropriations to launch an artificial intelligence-enabled Quality & Patient Safety initiative, or QPSi.
The University of Florida’s inaugural AI4Health: Improving Health through Artificial Intelligence conference in April explored how AI-enabled discoveries will change clinical practice and improve patients’ health.
REVOLUTIONIZING PATIENT CARE
Office of AI Application and Innovation
A multidisciplinary team at the College of Medicine Office of AI Application and Innovation is advancing the science and practice of patient safety using AI tools.
Through AI Labs for Patient Safety and Rapid AI Prototyping and Development Safety mechanisms, we explore and apply AI solutions to QI challenges.
We are developing a series of AI courses intended for physician learners. Aside from being prepared to address patient questions about AI in health care, these courses will develop a clinical workforce that is “collaboration-ready” to accelerate multidisciplinary teamwork with AI engineers.
We work with the College of Medicine Office of Research to develop pathways to successfully and sustainably translate AI solutions into clinical workflows that directly impact patient care.

Join our faculty
There has never been a more exciting time to become a Gator.
New faculty will join a multi-college network of investigators harnessing AI to benefit science and health in exciting new ways. UF Health is strengthening infrastructure and augmenting expertise to expand AI research, applications and training in health care delivery, biomedical discovery, and public and population health.
AI ACROSS THE CURRICULUM
BOLDLY FUELING THE FOURTH INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION
Artificial intelligence is more than just the next wave of high-tech. It is transforming nearly every sector of the economy. Using AI to analyze massive amounts of data has dramatically affected communications, accounting, finance, transportation, medicine, agriculture and more.
The University of Florida is making artificial intelligence the centerpiece of a major, long-term initiative that is combining world-class research infrastructure, cutting-edge research, and a transformational approach to curriculum. Its depth is making the university a leader in AI research and development; its breadth will make sure every UF student develops a basic competency in AI regardless of their field of study.
AI-enhanced health care decision-making and precision health.
AI-fueled development of novel diagnostics and therapeutics.
AI-powered modeling and surveillance of health determinants.
Patrick Tighe, M.D., Francois Modave, Ph.D., and Chris Giordano, M.D., discuss the origin of AI being implemented into the medical education curriculum at UF.
Construction has begun on Malachowsky Hall, a 263,000-square-foot academic building that will serve as a hub that connects students and researchers across disciplines.
A new era of academic pursuit has emerged at the University of Florida. Students and faculty are now able to apply AI across every discipline, putting the university at the center of creating a future that is data-based but human-inspired.
With $10 million annually in state funding, vision is to create an AI-enabled institute
The initiative will receive $10M annually to drive innovations that will improve patient quality and safety
