The Australian Alliance for Artificial Intelligence in Healthcare and The University of Melbourne are doing research to capture expert educators’ ideas and plans for educating the Australian health workforce about the use of artificial intelligence (AI) in health systems and services. Please participate in the survey if you are eligible, and pass on this invitation to others who may be eligible.

This survey is open now at:
and closes on 30 Nov 2020.

  • Education includes formal study for entry into the workforce; continuing professional development to maintain currency; post-basic training leading to specialist status; and preparation for examination to certify competence to practice.
  • The health workforce includes registered health practitioners as well as other health professionals, health researchers and health administration and support workers.
  • Artificial Intelligence (AI): The research project uses a broad definition of artificial intelligence that includes machine learning, natural language processing, computer vision and chatbots.

You are eligible to complete this survey if you hold an education-related position such as manager, coordinator, director or committee chair (paid or voluntary) in any of the following kinds of health-related organisations:

  • Education and training provider within the scope of the Australian National Training System (e.g. health and IT schools within universities and other registered training organisations)
  • Education and training provider not within the scope of the Australian National Training System (e.g. profession and industry training providers not included in the above)

  • Independent medical research institute given Administering Institution with AI status by the National Health and Medical Research Council.
  • Health professional association within the Australian Bureau of Statistics definition of Professionals (e.g. Australasian Health and Research Data Managers Association).
  • Health industry association (e.g. Medical Software Industry Association).
  • Allied health professions within Allied Health Professions Australia.
