Abstract

Even though Information and Communication Technology (ICT) has a relatively short history, it has become a part of the medical industry, not only in selected areas of high technology medicine, but throughout the industry. Apart from using IT for medical education, it has become a mandatory element in modern medical and surgical practice. Therefore, an ICT course was designed for the new entrants of the Faculty of Medicine and Allied Sciences, Rajarata University of Sri Lanka and the perception of students on the course was evaluated using a validated questionnaire. The results of this study confirmed that the course was well organised and interesting but the time allocated for the course needs to be increased.
