PROVEN Reality, a Virtual and Augmented Reality company, and Gulf Medical University’s Center for Advanced Simulation in Healthcare signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to improve healthcare education through virtual reality solutions.
The future of healthcare education appears to be set to move to the next level of innovation as a result of both parties’ cooperation and commitment. Simbios, a VR Medical Education Simulation Platform, provides students with a virtual learning environment in which they can review medical scenarios, test their skills with pathology and investigations, and conclude their diagnosis as if they were in a real-life setting. They will use virtual reality devices to simulate the real-life environment without limitations.
“Creating a training program for healthcare professionals in real-life requires a lot of detailing and planning and is time consuming. Every medical practioneer needs their own customized training program and there is one size fits all, solution for their needs,’ said Zaid Mashari, CEO of PROVEN Reality. “By signing this MoU, we are honored to begin the partnership journey with Gulf Medical University, which will help to evolve healthcare education for the better. A virtual and dynamic training environment for future doctors will enable them to be exposed to a more variety of clinical scenarios.”
Virtual reality (VR) training software, in conjunction with Simbios PROVEN Reality, provides a realistic environment for hands-on practice and experiential learning, which will revolutionize medical education. Furthermore, it enables teachers to create more personalized training programs that address the needs and goals of aspiring medical doctor students.
“Partnerships between technology service partners like PROVEN Reality and centres of education like the Center for Advanced Simulation in Healthcare, Gulf Medical University, can help to take medical education to the next level. We have decades of knowledge and practioneers on board while technology players like PROVEN Reality have the skills and the industry knowledge to take this partnership forward,” said Prof Hossam Hamdy Chancellor at Gulf Medical University.
The goal of education in today’s healthcare environments is to promote knowledge and skills in clinical practice. However, a lack of clinical experience has made it difficult for students to adjust to real-world situations when they begin practicing. Simulation has been shown to be an effective teaching-learning strategy for increasing efficiency. According to recent research, virtual reality in healthcare has the potential to bridge the theory-practice gap, improve safety, and raise educational standards.
Prof. Hossam Hamdy Chancellor from the Gulf Medical University and PROVEN Solutions’ CEO Zaid Mashari signed the MOU on behalf of their respective companies in the presence of Dr. Abdulghaffar Alhawi Head Center for Advanced Simulation in Healthcare, Prof. Manda Venkatramana Vice Chancellor, and Ms Sandhya Arun Training Manager Simulation from the university.
