Abstract. The introduction of artificial intelligence (AI) technologies is gaining momentum in the use in healthcare in general, as well as in general medical practice, for example, it is widely used in pathological anatomy, ophthalmology, radiology and oncology. Introduction of artificial intelligence into practice of the doctor demands from the medical personnel not only knowledge in the field of application of artificial intelligence for diagnostics and treatment of diseases, but also performance of a kind of supervising, supervising function at interaction with artificial intelligence, observance of ethical and legal norms. The aim of the research: 1) to confirm the relevance of the research; 2) to develop and implement an original method of teaching students – future doctors the basics of AI in medicine, containing invariant components (objectives, forms and methods, content and didactic materials); 3) to assess the attitude of students of medical universities and teachers of clinical departments to AI. To implement the objectives we used: 1) content analysis of scientific research and pedagogical literature; 2) online survey consisting of three main parts, allowing to carry out self-assessment of knowledge in the field of AI, Big Data and machine learning; to identify the main sources of information about AI technology in medicine; to identify the attitude of respondents to AI in medicine and health care; 3) control and diagnostic materials to assess the knowledge of students on the results of the course “Artificial Intelligence Systems in Medicine”. The results we obtained in the course of the study are consistent with the results of surveys to assess the attitude to artificial intelligence in medicine of students and teachers of universities, conducted by researchers and practicing teachers of medical universities.

Keywords: teaching medical students, artificial intelligence in medicine.
