SAIH Competency framework


Design approach

Competency framework for AI integration in healthcare

The CHUM’s School of Artificial Intelligence in Healthcare (SAIH) is proud to offer you a competency framework allowing a better integration of AI into healthcare practice.

AI is revolutionizing how we work. Even if it is promising, its implementation does not happen automatically. Our analyses show that technical skills are essential, but that they are insufficient. It takes an inherently human skillset to integrate AI for the benefit of patients and the population.

The SAIH competency framework is the result of 15 months of research, analysis and design. It was developed with the collaboration of experts from the fields of education, entrepreneurship and research, as well as patients and healthcare and service professionals. It is based on a literature search of over 200 sources, in addition to the experience of several clinicians in integrating AI into their health practice. Several iterations were performed with our partners.

We designed this competency framework to guide learners in their development. It is a sort of roadmap that lists the aspects to better adopt digital technologies. The SAIH’s programming builds on them. Learners can therefore refer to them to choose learning activities and personalize their training program.

Society is evolving, the world is changing, technological advances are constantly transforming them. Hospitals and their teaching and learning services must also, inevitably, undergo transformations. The SAIH competency framework is therefore intended to be scalable and will be refined with time and experimentation
