Mobile Device Requirements

All medical students are expected to possess a mobile device (laptop or tablet).  The College of Medicine does not make recommendations for specific devices; instead we encourage you to choose an internet-ready mobile device that suits your needs.  Examples of how these devices will be utilized include but are not limited to: retrieving and viewing lecture notes or presentation slides; digital note-taking; viewing videos; taking examinations; completing e-learning modules; and other basic computing tasks (word processing, PDF reader) and internet-based activities (research, email, web conferencing, Canvas).

Examsoft is the software used for exams in the College of Medicine.  Meeting these minimum requirements ensures that your device is compatible for examinations.

While it is likely you already own a mobile phone, and it will prove useful during your time at UNMC, a mobile/cellular telephone is not an acceptable device for exams because of the stringent requirements for participating in computer-based examinations.
