Simulation, Visualization and Immersive Telepresence for Medical Education: Can We Build a Virtual Hospital for Students?

Time 12/05/06 04:30PM-05:30PM

Session Abstract

Numerous medical schools are building simulation centers for training students, residents and hospital personnel. 3D anatomic models, stereo imaging, simulated surgical procedures complete with the sensation of touch, high resolution video from the operating room for a sense of telepresence - all are components that are being used today for education. Are they enough to begin crafting a vision of a comprehensive virtual hospital where students meet and treat virtual patients, manage routine needs and crises, and learn their craft in an immersive and authentic environment.
