Medical AI Bootcamp
A Harvard-Stanford Program for closely mentored research at the intersection of AI and Medicine
HMS LogoStanford Logo

The Medical AI Bootcamp provides Harvard and Stanford students an opportunity to do cutting-edge research at the intersection of AI and medicine. Over 6 months, members receive training to work on high-impact research problems in small interdisciplinary teams.

This bootcamp is a joint effort between Harvard and Stanford led by faculty Pranav Rajpurkar and Andrew Ng.

What we do

We tackle important problems in medicine that require artificial intelligence solutions. Our projects are often in close collaboration with clinicians at both Stanford and Harvard. We work on problems across clinical domains including radiology, emergency medicine, and cardiology, and develop computer vision and natural language processing solutions.

What you learn

You tackle a scoped-out research project in a small team from conception to co-authoring a manuscript. You receive mentorship from faculty in team meetings on project execution and direction. You develop knowledge of cutting-edge medical AI research in reading groups, and machine learning tools in skills building sessions.

Harvard and Stanford affiliates can apply to any of the artificial intelligence, medicine, or web development specializations based on their experience. Candidates are expected to be able to dedicate ~20 hours a week; undergraduates and graduate students are expected to sign up for research credits for one semester / quarter.

We actively seek and welcome candidates from historically underrepresented groups, candidates without previous research experiences, and candidates with primary fields of study outside STEM.

AI Specialization

Candidates with practical machine learning knowledge, and ability to code in Python.

Medicine Specialization

Candidates with clinical knowledge at least at the level of Step 2 and some clinical rotations. We are also particularly looking for radiology residents and fellows.

Web Specialization

Candidates with web stack expertise, covering both front-end and back-end for web applications.
