Description: We propose a new immersive and cost-effective tool for training. MedRoom is a VR platform for almost any kind of medical training: from anatomy studies, to patient care and minor surgeries. We recreate medical environments such as a surgery room, where we place a patient with a challenge for the user to solve. He may study the human body or train how to execute a venous access, orotracheal intubation, or even surgical procedures.
Skills and Ideas Taught: Decision-making, spatial visualization, stress control, memorization
Goal or Challenge: The goal is to optimize medical training in order to achieve better performance when using other simulators or even when treating a patient. The player have to follow and execute procedures well enough to keep the virtual patient alive and to solve its problems.
Primary Audience: Students from health courses, college level, 18+
Assessment Approach: By exploring the environment and performing procedures in a hands-on perspective.
