The Anesthesia Department at Stanford Healthcare is recruiting a 2-year fellow for analyzing the ethical and regulatory challenges in evaluating artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML) tools before they are deployed at Stanford Healthcare. The post-doctoral fellow will work closely with Drs. Danton Char, Nigam Shah, and Michelle Mello to both evaluate proposed AI/ML deployments into clinical care and to develop an approach for rapid systematic evaluation of AI/ML tools for ethical considerations.
