Call for Faculty Supervisors

T-CAIREM is launching its inaugural AI in Medicine Summer Studentship program. University of Toronto faculty who potentially have one or more positions available for post-secondary summer students are invited to take part. Please e-mail T-CAIREM at t.cairem@utoronto.ca.  
  
The potential supervisor must hold a faculty appointment with the U of T at the level of assistant, associate or full professor, and must be conducting research in artificial intelligence (AI) related to health.

Students can come from any post-secondary institution. This includes the development of new algorithms, applying existing algorithms to new health problems (in the basic sciences, clinical, or population levels), as well as work in AI ethics, governance, policy, patient engagement, implementation science or other areas.

The supervisor must also be a registered member of T-CAIREM at the time studentships begin. For Faculty members new to health AI research and aren't already T-CAIREM members, please visit the Membership section. Membership is free. 
 
We will be accepting applications for AI research projects that can be carried out either in-lab, remotely or a combination of both.  
 
Up to 10 summer studentships are available to undergraduate and medical students to carry out summer research in AI in health under the supervision of a T-CAIREM member. Students will be required to work full-time (35 hours per week) for a minimum of 10 weeks between May 1 and August 31 and attend weekly seminars and a mini-conference at the end of the summer.  
 
The student's stipend will be a minimum of $5,985 for the 12-week program. T-CAIREM will provide the supervisor’s institution with $2,992.50. A minimum of $2,992.50 must be provided by the supervisor.
