Grays Anatomy is available as an app. I don't know about the others.
As Twerppoet stated, Grays has its book available as an app. Harrison's Manual of Medicine is also in the App Store from what I have heard. I will verify later to confirm. In addition, McGraw-Hill with Inkling also created a digital version of their Harrison's Principles of Internal Medicine which was made for the iPad as well. You can purchase it whole or in sections depending on what you need ($199.99 or $49.99).
Regarding the extensions of .chm and .pdb...have you looked at any of the conversion software apps for ebooks, like Calibre? Worth a try to look. Also, have a look at this FAQ of calibre: http://manual.calibre-ebook.com/faq.html ...it will show you the extensions you are referring to.
Also, Medscape, WebMD and Merck Manual are all available in the App store as well.
Hope that helps.
Below you will find the Harrison Manual apps...

Can I suggest that you give them a pen and paper, typing on an Ipad is 14 words per minute, writing is 26, giving them a keyboard also means they are focusing on technology and trying to enter date as opposed to giving you their undivided attention. I fail to see how an IPAD does anything but introduce misdirection in a learning environment. If you have to give them anything, give them a stylus driven tablet so that they can note take at the same time, the new surface has a stylus, as does the HP slate and a few others, they are around the same price and the HP and other new windows 8 pro machines can be used as normal windows PC allowing them to be used for productivity such as word processing, powerpoint etc.. I have seen to many colleagues waste time trying to make the IPAD fit, it is for browsing content only which should be done as an offline study task away from the learning experience of the classroom.
I have seen schools use iPads and I can say from experience that students have no difference in attention to the teacher with an iPad. In fact, there should be more Medical apps for the iPad then the PC (correct me if I'm wrong). There are lots of apps that can be used for Office work, and in fact as a Tablet I think the iPad does touch computing better then Slate PCs. I believe that iPads enhance learning experience because they allow doing different things that a pen & paper could do. Don't get me wrong, Pen & Paper is still best at writing notes, and for doing worksheets, among other thing. I don't think the poster had the idea of replacing all school devices with an iPad, but rather to improve learning experience with it.
