Google Glass handed out to medical students at UC Irvine – CNET

I have a question.

The fledgling Google Glass is slowly working its way into the mainstream, and one place that people should get used to seeing the device is in hospitals.

Several medical institutions have already been testing the computer-enabled eyeglasses to see if the devices enhance doctors’ work. But the School of Medicine at the University of California, Irvine, is taking it one step further by issuing Google Glass to its students.

Irvine will be the first medical school to fully incorporate Glass into its four-year curriculum. Its first- and second-year students will use the device in their anatomy and clinical skills courses, while third- and fourth-year students will wear Glass during their hospital rotations.

Will the students be tested with the same Glass they were allowed to use while studying? I have concerns this would be a four year training session for Glass, not actually learning so they could go without it. (As opposed to their smartphones, I realize).+
