What is the American Board of Artificial Intelligence in Medicine (ABAIM)?
The ABAIM is an independent, nonprofit organization which aims to assist individuals to complete a certification as a credential for knowledge in the principles and applications of artificial intelligence and human cognition in medicine and healthcare (inclusive of related fields/areas of biomedical informatics, biostatistics, trial design, evidence-based medicine, etc).

What is the vision and mission for the American Board of Artificial Intelligence in Medicine (ABAIM)? 
The vision is to improve understanding and application of artificial intelligence to pursue improved outcome in clinical medicine and healthcare. The mission is to maintain and advance knowledge and expertise in artificial intelligence and human cognition in clinical medicine and health care by certifying clinicians, healthcare professionals, and students as well as data scientists and other stakeholders who meet the standards of knowledge.
Who is involved with the American Board of Artificial Intelligence in Medicine (ABAIM)?
A distinguished ABAIM multidisciplinary board of officers and leads with a 50-member group of advisors (covering subspecialties of clinical medicine, areas of artificial intelligence, or both) was convened for the nascent American Board of Artificial Intelligence in Medicine (ABAIM). The advisory group will guide to ABAIM board to execute the strategy to accomplish the vision and mission of the ABAIM.
If I am a clinician with little or no education and training in artificial intelligence (including programming), will this ABAIM AI in Medicine Review Course be too difficult for me?
This course is designed especially for clinicians and healthcare workers as well as students and trainees with little or no background in computer programming, data science, or artificial intelligence as well as data scientists and AI experts who do not have intimate clinical knowledge as we cover many areas in the domains of clinical medicine and artificial intelligence.
If I am a data scientist, can I take the ABAIM AI in Medicine Review Course as well as the ABAIM Assessment and Certification and will these be useful for me?
This course and assessment with certification is designed for everyone in this domain, with many topics relevant for data scientists in this domain (please see agenda).
What does the ABAIM Assessment and Certification entail?
The Assessment will consist of 100 multiple-choice questions to be answered in 2 hours. Upon successful completion of this assessment with a score commensurate with passing (to be determined), the certification will be awarded.
How does one prepare for the ABAIM Assessment and Certification?
There will be a monthly or quarterly (depending on class size) two-day review course and recommended textbooks as well as suggested videos and articles. An ABAIM certification question and answer book is available to attendees. There will be a mini pre- and post-course assessment before and after the review course in preparation for the ABAIM Assessment and Certification.
How long will the ABAIM Certification be good for?
There will be an ABAIM discussion about the length of certification but probably will be for two years. There will also be a process for re-certification that will be commensurate with the educational and professional level as well as encourage a continual educational process. There will be ongoing discussions about incorporating analytics and natural language processing in the maintenance of certification.
What are future plans of the American Board of Artificial Intelligence in Medicine (ABAIM)?
There is a plan for this certification process to lead to board certification for clinicians and other healthcare professionals as a subarea of excellence in healthcare in the future (similar to board certification in informatics). In addition, there is interest in educational and professional development towards specialized training in the form of fellowship in artificial intelligence in medicine and healthcare.
Will students and clinicians or faculty be expected to pass the ABAIM Assessment and Certification at the same score?
There will be either a tiered passing score strategy or different assessments for several groups. This is an ongoing discussion with the board and advisor group.
How can I help the American Board of Artificial Intelligence in Medicine (ABAIM)?
You can get involved by contacting us and submit your resume to join the advisory group in some capacity or let healthcare leaders and workers know about this review course and assessment and certification.
Is the ABAIM offering board certification in AI in medicine for clinicians?
At the present time, ABAIM is offering certification (not board certification) for everyone based on a passing grade on an assessment but will offer board certification for clinicians in the future. The ABAIM is not offering certification or board certification in biomedical informatics.
