Prestigious, Yale University, has certainly taken note of that. The private Ivy League university has given iPads to all its medical students. As Yale’s Daily News describes it – “Yale School of Medicine students’ backpacks just got a whole lot lighter.” Yale’s School of Medicine is giving all its med students an iPad 2. Students will be able to use Apple’s tablet in the classroom and clinical labs. The school is making students lives easier by giving them access to the medical curriculum, patient information and valuable materials. “The school spends about $100,000 each year to copy, collate and distribute course materials,”.  Yale spent about $600,000 on iPads this year, but the university plans to save lots of money in the coming years.
