Have iPad, will travel

It’s not out of the ordinary for medical students to spend their summers abroad working in clinics and gaining invaluable experience. But a UC Irvine cohort has an additional mission: sharing their knowledge of portable technologies that will transform how medicine is practiced.

Different journeys, same destination

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.
