Pathology and Laboratory Medicine-DASH Joint Clinical-Analytic Rounds (T-CAIREM)

November 24, 2023, 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm

Join us at our Joint Clinical-Analytic Rounds launch

In partnership with UBC's Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, the Joint Clinical-Analytic Rounds aims to create a place for new dialogues and collaboration between the clinical and analytic communities, where clinical experts bring relevant research questions and data, and the analytic experts provide ways to derive innovative solutions.

Our first session will feature the University of Toronto's Temerty Centre for AI Research and Education in Medicine (T-CAIREM), with Drs. Muhammad Mamdani and Amol Verma share Toronto's experience implementing data analytics and machine learning algorithms in the clinical setting. The audience will have the opportunity to engage in a discussion and Q&A period with the speakers and fellow attendees.
