Case Study

VR & AR in Medical Education

As part of efforts to transform medical education, Jump Simulation, through its Medical Visualization and Advanced Imaging and Modeling teams, uses the multi-dimensionality of virtual and augmented realities to develop learning opportunities for medical students, residents and professionals.

This is to condense the time faculty spends developing lectures and create interactive experiences allowing students to stay focused, comprehend, and ultimately build competencies in whatever skills they are learning.
