    Incoming Fall 2009 students are not required to purchase clickers. These students will use the iPod Touch with special software instead of 'clicker' devices. Details are posted in the Computer & Technology Orientation Site.
    Enrolled in UF’s College of Pharmacy? There’s an app for that.

    This year, all incoming PharmD students will be required to have an iPod touch or an iPhone, making UF the second school to implement the requirement, following the University of Missouri’s May decision, according to AppleInsider.com.

    Pharmacists in the future will rely on these devices to access patient medical records and verify prescriptions, he said. A professor in the department of pharmacotherapy, said he believes the new technology will help in the classroom.

    Students will use iPod touches or iPhones to participate in interactive quizzes during class and download free applications that will help first-year pharmacy students learn the names of various drugs, Munyer said.

    The college is developing a simulated patient that students will be introduced to at the beginning of class. Students will receive updates and messages about the status of the patient and its therapy throughout the semester.

      Yes it is useful for nurses! I am a nurse and use mine all the time. Epocrates and lexi for medication information and there are also ICD9 code apps as well as dosage calculation apps. There is also an Nclex study app with questions so you can practice on the go. I would suggest iPhone for any student/medical professional.

      Ummmm yeah... They have a dictionary app for you to look up how to spell words too! Give it a shot. You really have no clue what you're talking about do you? Oh well, without people like you the smart folks wouldn't look so smart.

      Isn't this basically the same thread we had when the other University did it? Would one of the mods like to cut and paste the comments from that thread or are we going to go throuigh all of the arguments again?
