University Requiring Students To Have iPod Touch, iPhone For Med. Curriculum

The University of Florida will be requiring students to own either an iPhone or iPod touch to enroll in their PharmD curriculum this fall, the school announced recently. “All entering PharmD students must have a iPod touch (or iPhone) and a computer meeting minimum UF and College of Pharmacy (COP) requirements,” they said in an announcement on their website.

Interestingly, the health care profession has generally been among the first to adopt the iPhone and App Store, with several medical refrence apps, blood glucose monitor accessories, and other software that lets obstetricians to virtually watch over their patients’ waveform data.

The university explained later that they won’t be enforcing the requiremetn, but added that it would be listed in a way that would allow them to include an iPod touch in their financial needs estimates.
