Georgia's only public medical university is encouraging its students to use their "iPhones" during class. The Associated Press reports that students and faculty at the Medical College of Georgia are using their cell phones to get help with everything from medical abbreviations to diagnosis codes. Additionally, students can also use the iPhone's so-called "apps" to locate campus buildings, access the course catalog, and even locate events on campus.
