Stanford School of Medicine is giving an iPad to all first-year medical students

The School of Medicine in August undertook a trial program for iPad use by distributing the device to 91 first-year medical and master’s of medicine students. Charles Prober, senior associate dean for medical education, noted growing challenges from the rapid flow of information, which the iPad’s mobility and graphics might manage better.

Integrated iPads as part of the education process is a larger hurdle than the cost. Kudos to Stanford for thinking forward.
