The MSc Artificial Intelligence for Biomedicine and Healthcare at   University College London (UCL) teaches the foundations of AI and how this technology can transform biomedical research, delivery of clinical pathways and improve healthcare.


As a student on the MSc Artificial Intelligence for Biomedicine and Healthcare at   University College London (UCL), you will be introduced to the foundations, use and development of AI approaches within the biomedical, clinical-sciences and healthcare application domains.

From diagnosis, prognosis, treatment selection to drug discovery and resource allocation, Machine Learning and AI are revolutionising the way we approach healthcare. Through its ability to analyse large quantities of complex heterogenous information, AI presents opportunities to improve care and productivity in health and care settings.


There is an urgent need to train a new breed of multi-disciplinary post-graduate students that are capable to effectively use AI expertise in biomedicine and healthcare.  From research to clinical decision support there is an increasing demand for computer scientists able to tackle with the unique obstacles that Machine Learning and AI face in healthcare.The programme is designed to train the next generation of computer science skilled professionals broadly working in the biomedical science and healthcare sectors (both industrial and public). You will be extremely competitive in the job-market as well as acting as a feeder pathway for the Department’s AI Centres for Doctoral Training.
