Computers are increasingly being used in clinical practice settings. Aware of the need to educate students regarding computer applications in medicine, the University of Kentucky College of Medicine is in the midst of developing a computer curriculum. To that end, many courses and clerkships have devised software packages for transmittal of course information and for evaluation of student performance. This paper outlines requisite computer skills that applicants applying to medical school should possess, broadly reviews how those computer skills will be used in medical school, and suggests means for attaining computer competency prior to making application to medical school.
