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.
