Dear Alumni, Colleagues, and Friends of the Miller School Family
It is an exhilarating time to be part of the University of Miami Leonard M. Miller School of Medicine. Plans are underway for the construction of a transformational cancer research building and an iconic edifice that will be the principal convening center on the medical campus and the home of the Miller Center for Health Professions Education and Innovation. We remain the No. 1 NIH-funded medical school in Florida. Our preeminent researchers and clinicians are using artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning to process data faster and more efficiently to evaluate patients and reach a diagnosis. By harnessing the power of AI, we are better positioned to evaluate and serve our diverse populations, reduce inequities, improve the patient experience and health outcomes. Our cover story in this issue of the Magazine, “Reality Check,” illustrates how effective implementation of AI capabilities can help address some of health care’s greatest needs.
