PDAs in Medical Education

Technology offers medical education enormous opportunity. Specifically, the PDA has become an extremely valuable tool for the medical student attempting to master an immense body of knowledge in the setting of a hectic clinic or ward. Yet many students know little about software or hardware for their PDAs or don't know where to start when beginning a search to purchase a PDA. This Medical Education coordinator hopes to better inform his peers by conducting a survey to see which schools are using PDAs, updating students on the essentials of hardware and software, and promoting the AMSA pdaMD package as a potential fundraiser for local chapters.
