McMedHacks 2023 Opening Ceremony

McMedHacks is back!

  • McMedHacks is an 8-week-long program that aims to teach students, researchers, and clinicians fundamentals of medical image analysis and deep learning in Python. It consists of a series of in-depth workshop demos with Google Colab and seminar series given by leaders in the field. McMedHacks is a program organized by the EngerLab at the McGill Medical Physics Unit (MPU), Lady Davis Institute. EngerLab is a part of McGill Centre for Translational Research in Cancer, as well as the Cancer Research Network. Last year’s participants can be found here!

  • NEW to this year’s edition:

    • Online learning module to learn at your own pace during the week with upon weekly mentor prior to coming to live sessions on Saturday (seminar) and Sunday (hands-on coding workshop) 
    • In-depth introduction to popular deep learning framework PyTorch
    • Phase 1: from week 1 to 4: providing a fundamental understanding of classical machine learning to deep learning applications on medical image analysis. 
    • Phase 2: from week 5 to week 8: introducing the best practices and state-of-the-art methodologies from current medical AI literature in medical image analysis and natural language processing. 
    • Certificates: phase 1 certificate for attendance from week 1 to 4; phase 2 complete certificate for attendance from week 1 to 8.
    • Networking opportunities during live sessions to connect with students, researchers, and professionals around the globe!
