If you give a Medical Student an iPad they’ll get better results & create mHealth innovation clubs. If you don’t they’ll err… just keep printing journals?



RCSI Student Medical journal


A Medical Independent news item today informed me that last night saw the launch of the latest printed journal by Medical Students at the Royal College of Surgeons.

While I’m sure it’ll have a great business model (RCSI private med school fees of +€30k pa will ensure the ad rates will be stratospheric) and it’s also available online as a PDF I can’t get past a little disappointment that some of the brightest young minds in medicine are still trying to innovate by printing letters on dead wood.

Don’t we need to do more if we have any hope of properly preparing these future Doctors for a career in which they will not be allowed to work without a mobile device that is always connected and packs anything less than a 1.6GHz octa-core processor and 32GB of memory.
