Abstract: The integration of Large Language Model (LLM) Artificial Intelligence (AI) tools into healthcare and education presents both opportunities and challenges. This pilot study aims to investigate the current usage and training practices surrounding LLM AI tools in didactic and clinical education within the University of Washington Department of Rehabilitation Medicine Professional Degree Programs (RMDP), encompassing occupational therapy (OT), physical therapy (PT), and prosthetics & orthotics (P&O).The research study is divided into two phases with two primary aims: Aim 1 (Phase 1) focuses on quantitatively describing LLM AI usage trends of RMDP students through an online survey. Aim 2 (Phase 2) will explore student perceptions and educational needs regarding LLM AI tools using qualitative focus group discussions. Data analysis will involve descriptive statistics and thematic analysis. Anticipated outcomes include insights into student AI usage patterns, perceptions, and educational gaps surrounding LLM AI tools, informing future curriculum development and faculty training initiatives.
