On Tuesday the Stanford Anesthesia Informatics and Media Lab (AIM) released a new iPad application designed to be used as an educational tool in the critical care student clerkship at the School of Medicine. According to the app description:

StanMed is an iPad app designed to be used by Stanford medical students, residents, fellows and faculty. We intend StanMed to be used in the classroom and at the bedside. StanMed will provide clinically useful educational modules, tutorials, videos, podcasts and cognitive aids to help facilitate learning at the point of care.

The application is free, but is currently open only to Stanford University affiliates with valid SUNet IDs. AIM is directed by Larry Chu, MD.
