All MD and DMD students are required to have a web-enabled mobile device such as an iPhone, iPad, Android phone or Android tablet. 

To be compatible with HMS services, the device must have the following:

  • For Android devices: Android 8.1 (Oreo) or newer
  • Wi-Fi capability
  • Microsoft Outlook for Android or iOS to access email and calendar.

Cellular service is not required but is strongly recommended.

Students are free to choose any mobile device (tablet or smartphone) that meets these requirements. HMS offers Wi-Fi connectivity throughout the campus to support these devices. If you need help getting your device setup, please email itservicedesk@hms.harvard.edu or visit TMEC 225.
