Students seeking an MD degree at the College of Medicine must have a minimum of computer skills (click here)
Students are required to have a laptop computer and a quality head set with microphone. We highly recommend a core duo processor 1.8 ghz or better 2 gb of ram. Real time video and audio communication(used frequently for lectures and Class discussions), will demand processing power as well as a sound ram configuation.
The College of Medicine and Health Sciences has developed an online courseware site with virtual classrooms which is available to all students 24hrs/day and 7 days a week.
The use of (multi)media rich content is paramount.
