The Department of Health – Abu Dhabi (DoH), has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to launch the Global AI Healthcare Academy in the emirate, which it said will reinforce the emirate’s position as a leading destination for healthcare and life sciences, a report said.

The MoU, which was signed with Mohamed bin Zayed University of Artificial Intelligence (Mbzuai), and Core42, a G42 company offering AI solution, during Abu Dhabi Global Healthcare Week (ADGHW) taking place from May 13-15, seeks to establish a framework of collaboration to strengthen the emirate’s standing at the forefront of technology-enabled and data-driven healthcare systems, Emirates News Agency, WAM, said.

The new Global AI Healthcare Academy will provide an AI-trained workforce capable of advancing diagnostic and operational efficiency, significantly improving patient care, and streamlining healthcare processes.

In line with Abu Dhabi’s healthcare innovation ambitions, both parties will collaborate to launch the Global AI Healthcare Academy, establishing various courses tailored to advancing AI in healthcare.
