iMedEd Google Glass Initiative

UC Irvine School of Medicine has been taking steps to integrate Google Glass into across its medical school curriculum since 2014.

"I believe digital technology will let us bring a more impactful and relevant clinical learning experience to our students,” said Dr. Ralph V. Clayman. "Our use of Google Glass is in keeping with our pioneering efforts to enhance student education with digital technologies — such as our iPad-based iMedEd Initiative, point-of-care ultrasound training and medical simulation.

"Enabling our students to become adept at a variety of digital technologies fits perfectly into the ongoing evolution of healthcare into a more personalized, participatory, home-based and digitally driven endeavor,” said Clayman, who was dean of the medical school at the time.
