Medical students can benefit greatly from AI chatbots, but only with properly engineered prompts. Different prompt types like zero-shot and few-shot yield different responses. Structured prompts provide key components for ideal answers. Prompt engineering minimizes problems like inaccuracy and bias. As AI chatbots reshape medical education, prompt optimization is an essential skill for harnessing their full potential.
