Apple Insider, Stanford University's School of Medicine is handing out iPads to med students. First year medical students and Master of Medicine students are the privileged bunch who'll be receiving Apple iPads in a move the university is confident in supporting. Four main reasons for the introduction of the iPad have been outlined, and they are as follows:
- The iPad "creates opportunities for efficient, mobile, and innovative learning."
- The technology is flexible; allows for annotations, sharing, etc.
- High quality information able to be accessed at any time.
- Replaces printed notes with PDFs.
