Quick - need a good, simple DSLR for $1500!

Your boss gives you 24 hours and $1500 to buy a simple DSLR camera for use in a clinic so the docs can take digital pictures of skin lesions and other pathologies, for future use in trainings (PowerPoints), websites, handouts etc. What do you do?

I have not much experience with cameras, and basically no time to research. I need a simple to use DSLR that will take quality close up and/or macro photos in normal office lighting.
These are not professional photogs, so the camera has to be relatively easy to use (as in, many many automatic functions).
I know there are a million places to research this stuff, but as I said, I'm on a very tight deadline to spend this money...so, if you had about $1500 bucks to throw at a camera for this kind of use, what would you pick?
(Supplemental - if you think a DSLR is not even a necessity, I'm all ears, a point and shoot that could handle this is fine, too, I guess. The main point is good photos of gross skin stuff, taken by non-professionals.)
Thanks, gang, as always.
