Re-taking an Exam in Medical School Because of a Mobile Application

What happens when a university lecturer published a mobile application with questions-answers about different medical specialties and decides to include some of those public questions in the test of a university examination? Well, trouble.

Students from Kings College London who recently sat through an Obstetrics & Gynaecology exam were surprised to note that a large proportion of the questions were identical to those found in an OB/GYN medical question app.

The author of the £1.49 app is a lecturer at the University who wrote some of the questions on the exam paper using information from the medical app that had been published.

This is why I don’t think it’s enough to  teach medical students about the meaningful use of social media and digital technologies, but medical professionals and lecturers as well.

  2. I do agree with all the ideas you’ve presented in your post. They are very convincing and will definitely work. Still, the posts are very short for novices. Could you please extend them a bit from next time? Thanks for the post.
