UC Irvine is handing out Glass to its med students, on CNET:
Several medical institutions have already been testing the computer-enabled eyeglasses to see if the devices enhance doctors’ work. But the School of Medicine at the University of California, Irvine, is taking it one step further by issuing Google Glass to its students.
Irvine will be the first medical school to fully incorporate Glass into its four-year curriculum. Its first- and second-year students will use the device in their anatomy and clinical skills courses, while third- and fourth-year students will wear Glass during their hospital rotations.
“I believe digital technology will let us bring a more impactful and relevant clinical learning experience to our students,” UC Irvine’s dean of medicine, Dr. Ralph V. Clayman, said in a statement. “Enabling our students to become adept at a variety of digital technologies fits perfectly into the ongoing evolution of health care into a more personalized, participatory, home-based, and digitally driven endeavor.”
