The Evolution and Use of Computer-Assisted Instruction (CAI) in Health Sciences Education at The Ohio State University College of Medicine

  • Ruann E. Pengov
Part of the Computers in Biology and Medicine book series (CBM)

Abstract

The Ohio State University College of Medicine has evolved as a leader in the field of computer applications in health sciences education. As noted in the most recent index of Kamp and Brigham (1976), the largest single collection of available computer-assisted instruction (CAI) courseware in medicine and health-related areas resides at The Ohio State University College of Medicine.
