Artificial Intelligence Resources

Please take a moment to complete a short feedback survey (~2-minute) to help improve the Artificial Intelligence Resources and guidelines made available to the EVMS community by the AI Executive Advisory Workgroup. The survey will remain open until Friday, Feb. 16.


Artificial Intelligence (AI) and more recently generative AI tools such as ChatGPT are changing organizations and society. To assist faculty, staff and students to use these tools responsibly and ethically the EVMS AI Executive Advisory Workgroup has developed a series of guidelines and resources. Please check this information periodically as the technology and related resources rapidly evolve.

Additional comments or suggestions are encouraged by emailing

Message from the President, Provost and Dean of the School of Medicine

Dear Members of the EVMS Community,

The advancement of publicly accessible generative Artificial Intelligence (AI), including tools such as ChatGPT, has been remarkable over the past year, signaling a paradigm shift in our approach to education, research and clinical practice. The trajectory of this technology, while not fully predictable, is clearly set to make a significant impact on our professional landscape. It is an opportune moment for us to engage with these tools, understanding and exploiting their potential within the frameworks of our institutional policies, which prioritize safety, security and academic integrity.

To facilitate this integration, I have initiated the AI Executive Advisory Workgroup. This body is tasked with developing a structured set of guidelines that will aid our faculty, staff and students in incorporating AI into their work. Moreover, it aims to identify the necessary infrastructure and resources that will support our AI initiatives and training programs. It also will serve as a platform to encourage ongoing dialogue and gather insightful feedback on the implications of AI for our institution's core mission.
