The Temerty Centre for Artificial Intelligence Research and Education in Medicine (T-CAIREM) is preparing for the 2022 T-CAIREM Summer Studentship program.

Information for supervisors

U of T faculty or researchers with U of T-affiliated institutes or hospitals who may have one or more positions available for a summer student should complete this form:

Deadline: November 5, 2021 (Friday)

The list of potential supervisors, project descriptions, and their e-mail addresses will be posted on the T-CAIREM website on November 15, 2021 (Monday). Students and supervisors will then jointly submit full applications in February 2022.  
 
The potential supervisor must hold a faculty appointment with the University of Toronto at the level of assistant, associate or full professor, and must be conducting research in artificial intelligence (AI) related to health.

We will be accepting applications for AI-related research projects that can be carried out either in-lab, remotely, or a combination of both. 

The supervisor must also be a registered member* of T-CAIREM at the time studentships begin.  (*Faculty who are new to the field of health AI research and are not members of T-CAIREM, please see the Membership section of our website for details on becoming a member. Membership is free.)

Information about students 

Students can come from any post-secondary institution. Student research may include 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, and other areas.

Student eligibility

Summer studentships will be available to undergraduate and medical students enrolled at a Canadian University to carry out summer research 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. Students must be able to attend the biweekly seminars and mini-conference at the end of the summer.
