The Artificial Intelligence Enabled Healthcare program from University College London (UCL) will create a unique interdisciplinary environment to train the brightest and best healthcare artificial intelligence scientists and innovators of the future.


The Artificial Intelligence Enabled Healthcare program from University College London (UCL) consists of a 1 year MRes followed by a 3 year PhD. Throughout this period the CDT will continue to closely monitor the need for continuing training and support, tailored to each student, and provide ongoing training in Research Skills.

Key facts:

The MRes programme covers the core competencies of artificial intelligence and has a central emphasis on how healthcare organisations work. As part of the MRes, you will complete a substantial Masters-level project of your choice, working with a supervisory team that will normally include a clinician and an academic. Projects will be embedded within the NHS setting, with trainees undertaking an immersive clinical experience through our mini-MD programme.

The remaining years will be more like a traditional PhD, which leads to the presentation of a PhD thesis at the end of the fourth year. During your PhD you will remain involved in CDT activities and will continue to work closely with relevant health professionals and clinical teams through our NHS partners and leading academics at UCL.
