Interactive Game Technologies For Medical Education And Training
Duke University School of Medicine and Virtual Heroes announced this month a framework agreement on a partnership encompassing a broad range of initiatives to leverage interactive game technologies for medical education and training.
The multi-faceted partnership will include initiatives in the following areas: healthcare team communication training; medical device and pharma product education; patient education; medical recertification; clinical trial education; CME courses; and healthcare quality assurance training.
The HumanSim™ platform by Virtual Heroes will soon enable healthcare professionals to sharpen their assessment and decision-making skills without risk to patients in realistic, challenging, immersive 3D environments. Virtual Heroes is creating HumanSim™ by taking the most advanced game technology on the planet (Epic Games’ Unreal® Engine 3) and integrating it with a real-time physiologic-pharmacologic model for an unprecedented experiential learning experience.
