​​​Ordering and supporting your Faculty of Medicine hardware, software and IT services.

Computer Equipment

UBC Faculty of Medicine offers standardized computer equipment, including desktops, laptops, printers, servers, and audio-visual equipment (e.g. headset and webcam).  Through standardization, we can minimize cost and turnaround times for support. 

The MedIT Service Desk will be your primary point of contact for initiating and submitting your order. Upon the approval of your purchasing request, MedPurchasing unit will place an order with our vendors.

  • Due to temporary chip shortage with our vendor, we are experiencing a delay in the time of arrival on our standard equipment of five to seven weeks.
  • Hardware not listed in our catalogue may take longer than usual, as prices need to be quoted with our vendor.
  • The price quotes turnaround from our vendor is 2 to 3 business days.
  • Orders over $3,500 need to be processed via Purchase Order, therefore it may take 2-4 weeks longer than usual.

While most of our equipment is standardized, MedIT can build and configure the appropriate server to suit your needs. We also provide virtual servers to improve the stability, manageability, and affordability of computing and storage.

Data Centre Hosting

MedIT provides data centre hosting services to manage and monitor your network, server and storage gear. Our facilities provide physical security, cooling, back-up power and high-speed connectivity to UBC networks. Storing your equipment in our data centres also frees up your internal networks and allows your organization to focus on its core business, not the technological infrastructure that supports it.
