Residency iPad Program


The Department of Medicine provides iPads to its residents to facilitate patient care and medical education.

-iPads enhance patient care on the wards by integrating the power of our electronic medical record and computerized order-entry system on rounds. Our goal is to have the team spend more time at the bedside with patients, rather than at a computer.
-iPads provide our residents with a number of bedside information resources, including Up-to-Date, ePocrates, Micromedex, and Pubmed. As a result, our residents have the ability to access clinical information and literature from any location within the hospital or clinic.
-iPads enhance workflow by providing residents with quick access to residency calendars, presentations, and service-specific handbooks. 

Vanderbilt has a reputation for being a leader in medical technology, and the iPad initiative enables residents to bring our vast array of electronic resources back to the place where real medicine occurs: at the patient’s bedside.
