Implication of Generative AI in Medical Education

Generative AI, including but not limited to ChatGPT, is expected to significantly impact the practice of medicine in the coming decades - and perhaps even sooner! We will be discussing how both the content and pedagogy of medical education will need to be updated to reflect this ongoing technological revolution, as well as the potential downsides and pitfalls.

Exploring Pedagogical Use-cases for AI Chatbots

In this workshop, we will explore different pedagogic uses of AI chatbots. We will discuss multiple pedagogical and productivity use cases, prompting strategies, and risk factors for AI in education. You will then get hands-on experience in small groups using a chatbot to explore possible pedagogical uses. We will also connect you to additional Stanford Teaching Commons resources.

Learning Objectives

  • Describe various educational uses of AI chatbots. 
  • Describe some of the risks of using AI in teaching and learning contexts 
  • Use a chatbot to generate useful outputs related to medical education.
