On Aug. 5, 104 members of UCI's School of Medicine class of 2015 received their first physician’s white coat, the first steps on the shared road to becoming doctors. The paths that brought these students to this juncture, however, differ significantly. Each brings a variety of life experiences, talents and backgrounds that will enrich the medical school experience.
By providing students with technological devices such as iPads and portable ultrasounds, UC Irvine School of Medicine is revolutionizing the way healthcare is taught. For the future doctors, such tools could one day be as standard as the stethoscope.
