Unlocking the power of AI
The MIT Jameel Clinic AI & Health Summer Program is a rigorous 1-week program aimed at introducing inquisitive young minds (grades 10-12) to artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) methods used to improve the precision, efficiency, and speed of healthcare.
Drawing strength from MIT’s distinctive roots, we believe in learning by doing, and we blur the boundaries between disciplines as we seek to solve hard problems. Embracing the unconventional, we welcome quirkiness, nerdiness, creative irreverence, and play.
MIT has been ranked as the no. 1 university in the world by the QS World University Rankings for 11 years straight.
Students will receive 3-4 hours of instruction on a daily basis from world-class instructors and are required to take all the courses listed below. Over the course of the program, students will be asked to work on group projects, which will culminate in a final presentation that students will be expected to share in class that will be evaluated by the instructors. Students who complete the program successfully will receive a certificate signed by instructors indicating satisfactory performance in the program.
There will be two cohorts, with one running from July 10-14 and the second running from July 17-21. The program will run from 10am - 5pm on a daily basis. Please select your preferred cohort in the application form.

1 / How long will this program run for?
Week 1 will be from July 10 - July 14 (Cohort 1)
Week 2 will be from July 17 - July 21 (Cohort 2)
This program is only for one week and students cannot participate in more than one cohort (e.g. if you have completed cohort 1, you will not be able to participate in cohort 2 and vice versa).
During the week the program will run from Mon - Fri. Classes will start at 10am and end around 5pm
This program is in-person on MIT campus!
2 / Where is the Jameel Clinic AI & Health Summer Program located?
The program will primarily be on MIT campus, with occasional trips neighboring organizations.
3 / What are the costs associated with participating in this program?
The Jameel Clinic AI & Health Summer Program is provided at no cost to admitted students.
Students should be prepared to bring their personal laptops, but we are happy to provide loaner laptops to students.
4 / Will housing and transportation be provided?
The Jameel Clinic AI & Health Summer Program is not a residential program so we rely on parents to provide housing and transportation to and from the program. Ideally students will be coming from the Boston area (or somewhere close), so housing should not be an issue.
5 / How are students selected for the program?
Applicants should be incoming sophomores, juniors, and seniors. Students will be selected based on their interests and academic background. Students who are not admitted are encouraged to re-apply next year if not selected for this year's cohort.
All applicants who meet the eligibility requirements will be considered, regardless of gender, race, or ethnicity.
6 / Is there an attendance policy?
Students are required to attend class. Absence or inactivity within your course may result in a dismissal from the program. Students dismissed for reasons of absence or inactivity will not receive a certificate by the end of the course.
7 / What are your COVID-19 vaccination requirements for students studying in-person for Summer 2023?
The Institute has announced that effective May 11, 2023, Covid-19 vaccination will no longer be mandatory at MIT. Covid-19 vaccination will remain strongly encouraged for all participants in programs for minors after May 11, but will not be required.
