The Training Pills for medical students are ready: AIIS Project

We completed the educational material (Training Pills) on Artificial Intelligence and Soft Skills

The University of Salamanca (USAL) and the AIIS consortium continue presenting new results of the AIIS Project: Artificial Intelligence, Innovation & Society. The project aims to improve medical students’ digital and soft skills with an innovative online program. In this phase, the consortium developed the AIIS Training Pills (Educational Material).
