Teaching Med Students about Computers an Important Lesson

“The recent explosion of interest in computers and the demand that they be made an integral part of the healthcare delivery process has introduced a new dimension to the knowledge and experience that a physician must have to practice effectively and prudently.
Medical schools, hewing to the general trends in education, have not incorporated instruction in computer science and computational thinking into their curricula. As a result, medical school graduates lack the basic knowledge that is needs to make full, effective, and safe use of computer technology in medical practice.”
