Our team manages the software and applications that are used to support your digital education experience at the School of Medicine. Due to the varied nature of the curriculum, we have a large suite of tools for different purposes, which are listed below.

We also provide guidance on best practice when using your iPads and can provide drop in sessions or one to one training if you require help.
