Thank you to all who attended and participated in this year’s Research and Impact Day. Every year, this flagship event provides an opportunity for students to showcase their important work, hear from experts in the field, and connect with our fellow IHPME community members.

The theme for this year was “Navigating the Future: The Role of AI in Transformative Healthcare.” Attendees engaged with poster and oral presentations from students across program disciplines that focused on the intersection of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in healthcare systems and delivery models.

Programming highlights included an expert panel discussion, featuring speakers who shared their insights on how AI is revolutionizing healthcare and a keynote address by Dr. Muhammad Mamdani, Vice President of Data Science and Advanced Analytics at Unity Health Toronto and Director of the University of Toronto Temerty Faculty of Medicine Centre for Artificial Intelligence Research and Education in Medicine (T-CAIREM).
