Ohio med school prescribes iPods for students

Interesting announcement about how OSU Med students will be using the ipod as a learning tool. I think this is a great idea in that we have a pocket size device that enables doctors to reference videos, audio, text, research, and much more. This is just the beginning of the new American worker in an information age. Access to information is at our fingertips so the key is euqipping students to be problem solvers, disseminators of conent, quick learners, and unafraid to adapt to new ways of teaching and learning.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - The iPod is going to medical school


Officials said Tuesday that an Apple Inc. (AAPL) (AAPL) portable media player will become standard equipment for Ohio State University med students.

They'll use the devices to view videos of medical treatments and review images of the human body and organs. Students with the handheld gadgets also will be able to show patients photographs to help identify medications they're already taking before any new drugs are given.

Third-year medical student Justin Harper is credited with recognizing the potential in the iPod "touch" model, equivalent to an Apple iPhone without the telephone features.

The university says within two years every Ohio State medical student will be issued an iPod touch loaded with special medical software.
