Mayo Clinic adding AI to curriculum


MARIA: A MAJOR INVESTMENT IN THE FUTURE OF HEALTH CARE IN AMERICA. THE MAYO CLINIC SCHOOL OF MEDICINE RECEIVING A $200 MILLION GIFT FROM JAY ALEX, THE LARGEST EVER MADE TO THE CLINIC. JOINING ME RIGHT NOW ARE ALEX PARTNERS FOUNDER JAY ALEX AND JOHN NOSEWORTHY. THANK YOU FOR JOINING US. WOW, JAY, WHAT A GIFT. CONGRATULATIONS TO YOU THAT YOU’RE ABLE TO DO SUCH A THING AT THE MAYO CLINIC.>>MAYO IS SUCH A HE DESERVING INSTITUTION. THE MEDICAL SCHOOL IS ONE OF THE TOP RANKED MEDICAL SCHOOLS IN THE COUNTRY. TO BE ABLE TO HELP THEM WITH THEIR MISSION IS A GREAT OPPORTUNITY FOR US. MARIA: THIS WILL HELP THE MEDICAL SCHOOL A LOT, DR. NOSEWORTHY. AND YOU’RE GOING TO BE ABLE TO ATTRACT NEW TALENT WITH THIS.>>THIS IS GOING TO HELP US A GREAT DEAL, ATTRACT THE BEST STUDENTS FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD, FROM ALL BACKGROUNDS, REGARDLESS OF ABILITY TO PAY FOR MEDICAL EDUCATION. IT WILL HELP US WITH NEW CURRICULUM AND DUAL DEGREES AND INNOVATIVE WAYS OF TEACHING AND TECHNOLOGY AND ALL THOSE GOOD THINGS. IT’S A WONDERFUL GIFT. WE’RE REALLY GRATEFUL TO JAY. MARIA: YOU’RE GOING TO BE ON THE BOARD. TELL US WHAT YOU WANT TO SEE FROM THE MAYO CLINIC AND HOW THIS MONEY COULD BE BEST USED.>>WHAT THIS GIFT IS ABOUT IS REALLY HELPING ATTRACT THE BEST STUDENTS FOR THE MEDICAL SCHOOL, TO TRAIN THE DOCTORS OF THE FUTURE. THE COUNTRY IS FACING A CRISIS A THAT WE’RE GOING TO NEED PROBABLY 110,000 DOCTORS IN THE NEXT 10 YEARS THAT WE DON’T HAVE TODAY AND WE DON’T KNOW WHERE THEY’RE GOING TO COME FROM. WE NEED TO TRAIN MORE DOCTORS AND WE HAVE TO PROVIDE THE MONEY AND SUPPORT AND THE SCHOLARSHIP TO HELP THOSE STUDENTS GET INTO MEDICAL SCHOOL AND HAVE THE COUNTRY HAVE THE RIGHT DOCTORS IN THE FUTURE. MAYO CAN DO THAT. MARIA: IT WAS MAJOR ISSUE IN THIS PAST ELECTION, EVERYBODY SAID THAT HEALTH CARE WAS NUMBER ONE MATTER THAT WAS VERY IMPORTANT TO VOTERS. THE DEMOCRATS TAKING THE HOUSE IN THE MIDTERM ELECTIONS. THEY SAY ONE OF THE PRIORITIES IS HEALTH CARE IN AMERICA. JOHN, TELL US WHERE THE NEEDS ARE RIGHT NOW. TELL US WHAT YOUR VIEW IS IN TERMS OF WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE TO TAKE HEALTH CARE UP TO THE NEXT LEVEL.>>SO THE MAJORITY OF AMERICANS ARE CONCERNED ABOUT ACCESS, COVERAGE, AND THE COST OF HEALTH CARE AND THE NEED FOR TRANSPARENCY TO DRIVE DOWN THE COST BUT ALSO IMPROVE THE OUTCOMES. AND WE SUPPORT ALL OF THAT. FOR MAYO CLINIC IT’S MORE THAN COST. IT’S CERTAINLY COST BUT IT’S ALSO OUTCOMES AND THE PERFORMANCE AND HOW WELL HEALTH CARE PERFORMS. AND AT MAYO CLINIC WE’RE ABOUT HOW TO GET ANSWERS QUICKLY AND EFFECTIVELY AND PROVIDE PATIENTS WITH THE BEST POSSIBLE CARE. THE DOCTORS OF THE FUTURE ARE GOING TO HAVE TO DEAL WITH TRANSPARENCY, COVERAGE, COST, ACCESS, TECHNOLOGY, HOW TO DRIVE THE SAFEST AND HIGHEST TECHNOLOGY, MOST AFFORDABLE HEALTH CARE SYSTEM WHICH WE DON’T HAVE. AT THE MOMENT, WE’RE TIED TO THESE ELECTION CYCLES EVERY TWO YEARS. SO IT’S THIS AND THAT AND THIS AND THAT AND UNTIL THE COUNTRY DECIDES THAT IT’S REALLY A PRIORITY FOR THE CITIZENS, WE’RE NOT GOING TO GET THAT LONG-LASTING ANSWER THAT WE NEED. MARIA: YOU TALK ABOUT OUTCOMES. WE’VE BEEN ALL ABOUT PREVENTION THESE LAST SEVERAL YEARS, TALKING ABOUT GETTING AHEAD OF DISEASE. HOW MIGHT THAT MONEY BE USED TOWARD GETTING AHEAD OF DISEASE AND WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE NEEDS IN THIS COUNTRY TODAY, I KNOW WE HAVEN’T DONE ENOUGH WORK OR WE NEED MORE MONEY FOR ALZHEIMER’S, FOR EXAMPLE, AND ISSUES RELATED TO THE BRAIN. WHERE ARE THE NEEDS IN THAT REGARD?>>WELL, I THINK WE HAVE REALLY LEADING EDGE TECHNOLOGIES NOW. WE HAVE ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE COMING ONLINE. WHAT A.I. WILL DO FOR MEDICINE AND THE DIGITIZATION OF PERSONAL HEALTH DATA WILL REVOLUTIONIZE HOW WE DO DIAGNOSIS. EARLY INTERVENTION, DIAGNOSIS AND PREVENTION WE CAN CHANGE OUTCOMES FOR ALL PEOPLE WHO HAVE SERIOUS COMPLEX MEDICAL PROBLEMS. MAYO IS LEADING THE WAY ON THAT. MARIA: THIS IS AN IMPORTANT POINT. A.I. IS ABLE TO WORK WITH DOCTORS TO IMPROVE THE OUTCOMES. ISN’T THAT RIGHT?>>ABSOLUTELY RIGHT. I THINK IT’S ALSO PREDICTION. IT’S EARLY DIAGNOSIS BUT IT’S ALSO PREDICTIVE GENOMICS, IF YOU WILL. KNOWING WHAT WE KNOW ABOUT PEOPLE, WHO IS LIKELY TO BE AT RISK FOR THIS OR THAT SO YOU CAN DIAGNOSE IT EARLY. IT’S ALL OF THAT TOGETHER. THE YOUNG KIDS WHO WANT TO DO MEDICINE, WANT TO HAVE A LIFE OF SERVICE, THEY NEED TO HAVE THAT KIND OF EDUCATION TO PREPARE THEM FOR THAT. MARIA: WHAT HAVE YOU DONE DIFFERENTLY IN TERMS OF A.I. AT THE CLINIC?>>WE HAVE OVER 100 PROJECTS TRYING TO PREDICT HOW TO READ X-RAYS BETTER, HOW TO PREDICT FROM GENOMICS HOW THINGS WILL PLAY OUT. WE’RE WORKING INTO EVERYDAY LIFE AT MAYO CLINIC, MONITORING PATIENTS’ HEARTS, WHO IS AT RISK FOR HEART DISEASE, THAT SORT OF THING. MARIA: THIS MONEY WILL GO TOWARD GETTING NEW STUDENTS WHO WILL BE LOOKING AT A.I. AS PART OF THEIR CURRICULUM, VERY DIFFERENT THAN THE DOCTORS IN THE PAST.>>EXACTLY. MEDICAL EDUCATION IS GOING TO HAVE TO EVOLVE QUICKLY AND KEEP ONE THE NEW TECHNOLOGIES, NEW BREAKTHROUGHS IN SCIENCE AND APPLY IT INTO THE CLINIC FOR PEOPLE. MAYO CLINIC CAN LEAD THE WAY ON THAT WITH THIS GIFT AND WITH THE RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT. MAYO HAS CLINICAL CARE, EDUCATION AND RESEARCH AND THE COMBINATION OF THOSE THREE WORKING TOGETHER IS WHAT THIS GIFT WILL ALLOW MAYO TO DO.>>WE’LL BE OFFERING A MASTERS OF ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE. MARIA: MASTERS OF A.I.>>MASTERS OF REGION>>MASTERS OF REGENN>>MASTERS OF REGENERATIVE SCIENCE, MASTERS OF ADVANCED BIOTECHNOLOGY AND BIOENGINEERING. IT WILL BE IN THE CURRICULUM. MARIA: WHERE HAVE YOU SEEN THE MOST PROGRESS IN TERMS OF OUTCOMES IN TERMS OF DISEASE? IS IT CANCER? IS IT SOMEWHERE ELSE? HEART DISEASE? WHERE HAVE YOU SEEN THE BIGGEST –>>I THINK IT’S IN ALL THE SERIOUS ILLNESSES. WE’RE MEASURING OUTCOMES MUCH BETTER, QUALITY OF LIFE, LIFE EXEC TAKEN EXPE TAKEN EXPECTAKEN EXPECTANEN EXPECTANCY, ALL OF THOSE THINGS ARE PUTTING ON SCORE CARDS. QUANTITATIVE OUTCOMES, IT’S STILL IN ITS INFANCY, BUT IT’S CRITICAL IF WE’RE GOING TO HAVE THE BEST HEALTH CARE SYSTEM IN THE WORLD. MARIA: YOU NEED PRIVATE INVESTORS AND PRIVATE PRACTITIONERS TO COME IN AND HELP THE SITUATION. AND HERE COMES YOU, JAY ALEX. THANK YOU SO MUCH.

  2. I fully expect this tech to aid the professional across multiple disciplines. Advancements will be realized sooner and distributed to remote areas as communications become more refined and intuitive. Patient monitoring has always been the professionals de facto tool.

  3. AI should be in charge of government. In fact, AI and robots will make rational decisions that humans can’t make often times. And because of that, robots will being replacing most humans soon. Get ready.
