As institutions of higher education continue to look for ways to keep up with the expectations of the next generation of students while preparing them for the real world, the digital transformation of medical education has been a major game changer.
Medical schools, healthcare programs, and residency and internship programs are increasingly using AR and VR technologies as a cost-effective complement to traditional training methods.
Virtual reality offers students an immersive learning experience that allows them to manipulate anatomical structures and better understand spatial relationships in the human body.
“The application of digital reality technologies in the classroom and answers within the metaverse will help physicians gain valuable admission, excessive fidelity and experiences before workforce entry,” says Vikram Savkar, Senior Vice President of Wolters Kluwer’s Medical, Learning, Research and Healthcare Practice phase. “Despite the fact that nothing can actualize expertise with fingers, these technologies can give a sturdy bridge between the experiential domain and the lecture room.”
Designed for any educational program with an anatomy component (medicine, nursing, physical therapy, occupational therapy or sports medicine), BioDigital XR offers an active and intuitive learning solution that students can access anytime, anywhere.
This collaboration will combine BioDigital XR with the world’s most trusted line of anatomy content, which includes Lippincott’s portfolio of products such as Moore’s Clinical Oriented Anatomy, Grant’s Dissector and Acland’s Anatomy, among others.
“We are pleased to partner with Wolters Kluwer with the addition of BioDigital XR to the Lippincott portfolio. With BioDigital XR and BioDigital Human, universities and hospitals around the world can access the most complete version of the human body ever created in the cloud, in digital truth and on mobile and desktop devices, a further step in improving our understanding of health and the human body,” said Frank Sculli, CEO of BioDigital.
Wolters Kluwer and BioDigital will present the latest innovations in virtual reality at the upcoming International Meeting on Simulation in Healthcare (IMSH) to be held January 21-25, 2023 in Orlando, Florida. Be sure to visit them at booths 747 and 956 respectively.
This news follows the addition of BioDigital’s 3D virtual body platform to Ovid for an immersive teaching and learning experience, announced earlier this year.
