Third annual Ali Abdulla Al-Ubaydli scholarships for mobile medical computing

Posted in Medicine, Technology by Dr Mohammad Al-Ubaydli on October 28, 2008

It’s that time of year again folks, the annual Ali Abdulla Al-Ubaydli scholarships for mobile medical computing. The first round is for US citizens and non-US citizens living in the USA. Know who someone who would qualify? Ask them to apply for a Scholarship. (The second round is coming within the next couple of weeks and will be open to others around the world.)

Dr. Mohammad Al-Ubaydli and Epocrates are pleased to provide annual Ali Abdulla Al-Ubaydli scholarships for mobile medical computing. Every year we award $5000 of Ali Abdulla Al-Ubaydli™ Scholarships for Mobile Medical Computing™ to select and train the next generation of mobile medical computing researchers.

The challenge

At the end of 2008 there are over 1000 citations in PubMed™ that dealt with handheld computers. Many lessons have accumulated in the clinical literature but we need to understand and assimilate these lessons.

The challenge is to provide these lessons as peer-reviewed and unbiased summaries based on scientific fact, not marketing hype.

The Scholarships

Each year we select two scholars in the USA and offer other awards to applicants from around the world to review selected literature and make summary reports that will be published in the Mobile Medical Computing Reviews journal. The award winners will be mentored and trained by Dr. Mohammad Al-Ubaydli, author of six books, including “Handheld Computers for Doctors“.

The results

Once complete, the reviews will be published and freely available through the website of the new journal Mobile Medical Computing Reviews. Each scholar will be able to quote their own reviews in their list of publications.
