This week, Ontario Medical Association (OMA) members will be asked to vote on the tentative OMA-Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care Binding Arbitration Framework (BAF). As with all democratic processes, I would encourage all OMA members to express their opinion.
Five years ago, we developed a strategic framework that would unite the three schools in the Faculty of Health Sciences under one vision: to ask questions, seek answers, advance care, and inspire change. In that time, the faculty has established itself as a point of pride for the university and it has been thanks to the dedication and commitment of our students, faculty members, and staff that we have advanced the respective strategies of the schools of medicine, nursing, and rehabilitation therapy.
The prospect that much of what humans do will be replaced by machines is nothing new. From the earliest days of the industrial revolution, there has been a massive amount of human labour that has been replaced by machine-based solutions. But many predict, we are on the cusp of another, digitally-based revolution that will see much of our professional work being replaced by artificial intelligence technologies.
