Currently, textbooks and video lectures are the predominant modalities employed in medical education. Being forced to rely on these outdated learning methods to absorb mountains of information leaves many medical students feeling overwhelmed and burnt-out. VxMED is translating textbook and lecture medical knowledge into an interactive and enjoyable virtual learning experience.
Utilizing the latest VR technology, VxMED creates interactive clinical patient encounters, each of which features a unique 3-D patient exhibiting the life-like symptoms of important diseases for medical students to master. As students interact with each virtual patient–identifying symptoms, ordering tests, suggesting treatment, etc.–their medical knowledge will expand, and their ability to care for patients will improve.
