The iPad Learning Initiative
UCSD School of Medicine is embarking on a digital transformation journey in the current curriculum with a new iPad initiative. By providing iPads as a common device to first- and second-year medical students, we will be able to better integrate technology into our curriculum to support student learning. Upon matriculating, students will receive an iPad and Apple Pencil to use as tools to enhance their pre-clinical and clinical education.
