Dr. Chang is the founder of AI Medicine and chair of the American Board of AI in Medicine. Driven by his fascination with mathematics and computer science, he took the leap to join Stanford's AI and data science program after dedicating 25 years to the practice of pediatric cardiology. Following four years of intensive education, he conceived AI Medicine—an innovative interface bridging the realms of clinicians and artificial intelligence. Dr. Chang envisions AI making a significant impact on clinicians through various avenues, such as revolutionizing medical imaging and devices, harnessing the power of deep learning, and integrating robotic process automation to alleviate the administrative load on clinicians and to enhance their efficiency.
Within his own clinical practice, Dr. Chang employs ChatGPT as a checklist and a safety measure, especially when navigating complex decisions and intricate diagnoses. Dr. Chang advises clinicians who wish to integrate AI into their practices to begin by becoming proficient in "AI conversation," which involves familiarizing themselves with the vocabulary and principles of artificial intelligence. As a medical school professor, Dr. Chang integrates AI education into the curricula of his medical students and endorses the use of ChatGPT, allowing students to formulate advanced queries and assessing ChatGPT’s responses by critiquing the generated answers.
Along with writing the second edition to his book, Dr. Chang is currently planning the next AI Med Global Summit. This global gathering attracts clinicians spanning various subspecialties and is slated to take place in Florida in 2024. He also invites any interested clinicians to join the Alliance of Centers of AI Medicine (ACAM), a growing group of 77 healthcare centers that virtually meet monthly to discuss their uses of AI.
