Abstract: This paper describes the process of introducing a mobile learning strategy into a medical school by issuing iPads to clinical students. Data was collected from focus groups, surveys and by engaging a number of student “iPad champions”. Students had a positive attitude and experience with the iPads for learning and highlighted some areas for improvement particularly for electronic sign-off. Introduction of mobile technology into medical education is proving to be popular with medical students. Early adoption of mobile technology brings medical students closer to the digital healthcare environment which is rapidly adopting the use of electronic health records, electronic x- ray and laboratory order and online evidence-based practice tools to support patient care.
