Understanding policies and principles regarding educations and training

Education and Training

The Education and Training Strategy will focus on utilizing the DHDP to design and deliver innovative interdisciplinary training to produce skilled science, technology, engineering, mathematics (STEM) workers and healthcare professionals.

Via our education and training strategies, we will design training programs in the application of cutting-edge technologies (AI and experimental) to healthcare, short-term internships and inter-laboratory training visits, skills upgrading, and mentorship programs. We will also make recommendations on educational and training material. The overall objective is to develop AI specialists with an appreciation of life sciences concepts and processes, upgrade clinical and scientific researchers' and trainees' understanding of AI concepts to assist in science and health care as well as attract and retain top talent to grow Canada’s knowledge economy.
