As consumers work on making up their mind on how Google Glass will fit into their lives, medical students at University of California, Irvine will be using the wearables for their classes. Announced today, the medical program at UC Irvine is taking on an initial 10 pairs of Google Glass to use in the classroom with third- and fourth-year medical students, with the intention of adding another 30 pairs for use with first- and second-year students later in the year.
As UC Irvine points out, while other schools have dabbled with the idea of using Glass for medicine, it is going all-in with integrating Glass into its full four-year medical school curriculum. The Glass units will be loaded with proprietary software to provide live video streams, information on patient care and learning materials while students are doing hands-on learning.
