Certificate Eligibility:

To be eligible for the Certificate of Completion, learners must attain a minimum of 80% class attendance (of synchronous sessions offered) and complete all required assignments.

Applied AI in Medicine Assignments:

Learners are required to complete two tasks, submitted as word/PDF documents, to meet the certificate of completion requirements for the program. These tasks may be submitted upon conclusion of the live synchronous sessions (specific deadlines will be provided by the instructor) and will require learners to apply skills learned throughout the program. Additional details will be provided upon introduction to the program.
