We are proud to announce the first cohort of Fellows in Clinical Artificial Intelligence!
This unique programme will train a generation of NHS leaders to deliver the transformational power of Artificial Intelligence in healthcare.
Our fellows are smart and energetic individuals who will lead the charge to revolutionise the NHS with clinical AI.
Fellows were recruited competitively from all medical specialties in the training regions attached to the London AI Centre’s partner NHS Trusts.

About the fellowship programme
Clinicians with expertise in Artificial Intelligence are essential to the rollout of AI software in hospitals. In order to fully realise the UK government's goal of being a global AI superpower, the NHS must provide dedicated training for clinicians in cutting-edge skills required for clinical AI deployment (as recommended in the Topol Review). To date there has been no formal or systematic route to acquire skills in clinical AI deployment.
This fellowship addresses this training need. It is a year-long programme (Cohort 1: June 2022- June 2023) which is integrated part-time alongside the medical training of doctors approaching consultancy. Fellows undertake immersive AI projects in live hospital workflows, supervised by world experts in clinical AI.
Fellows will gain further skills and knowledge from a programme of teaching aligned with the Clinical AI Curriculum developed by Guy's & St Thomas' Department of Medical Physics.
This ground-breaking fellowship was created by the London AI Centre and supported by Health Education England. We are pleased to confirm that an independent educational evaluation has been commissioned from the Health Innovation Network for this inaugural cohort.
"'The launch of the Clinical AI Fellowships is a unprecedented step towards integrating experiential learning into postgraduate training pathways, and we hope to learn from, and scale opportunities like this to other regions and healthcare professional groups, to help prepare the future clinical AI specialist workforce"
- Dr Hatim Abdulhussein, Clinical Lead at HEE Digital, AI and Robotic Technologies in Education Programme (DART-Ed)
Recruitment for the next cohort of these fellowships will begin in late 2022.
