​Session 5, Day 3 MedTech20: Digital Health & the Future of Learning

The future of education will involve more virtual training incorporating VR and augmented reality was the main topic of discussion during this session. Case studies from Immertec were presented of real-time virtual surgical training. Live surgical training platforms allows doctors to observe, communicate and collaborate remotely in 3D virtual reality.

Advantages include: shorter training cycles; enhanced adoption of new surgical techniques and devices; improved learning (providing trainees with immersive, distraction free learning environments).

Virtual learning and experiences will be an integral part of surgical training in the future.
