What healthcare AI course to take?
Ignacio H. Medrano, founder and Chief Medical Officer:
I have a friend named Nuria Gago.
She called me a while ago because she was writing a book, and there was a character with Alzheimer’s in it, and she wanted me to tell her about it.
I told her.
And she included some literal phrases, which is something curious to read later when you see it.
She won the Planeta Prize, the most prestigious literature one in the hispanic world.
So I asked her the typical stupid question, whose answer I already suspected:
– Nurigago, what writing course do you recommend to improve my writing?
– None. Just start writing.
Always that response…
Ask a good fisherman what fishing course he recommends. You’ll see what he says.
Or ask Michael Jordan what basketball course he recommends.
Or ask Dabiz Muñoz, the best cook in the world, what cooking course he recommends. You’ll see…
Or ask the best dad you know what course to be a father he recommends.
I’m often asked about a course on AI and healthcare.
Sometimes I recommend one out of obligation, but deep down, I think: none. Start a project.
And if not, ask Elon Musk which MBA he recommends.
Well, I think the idea is clear.
Courses are good for silencing consciences and procrastinating.
For learning, do.
P.S. I think very short courses, of a few hours, to provide context, to know if you like something and where to start, that’s what really makes sense.
