Royal Society of Medicine and ITN showcase award-winning University project

About this video

ITN productions have created a video featuring the School of Medicine’s award-winning work utilising virtual reality in clinical simulation for students.

The ‘21st Century Healthcare’ programme broadcast at the Royal Society of Medicine aims to showcase innovative practice within the NHS and medical education which will help shape the future of the healthcare environment.

The University is using virtual reality content to enhance the curriculum within the medical school and increase exposure to simulated experiences for medical students.

Led by Paul Duvall, Director or Technology Enhanced Learning, and Dr Vidhi Taylor-Jones, Lead for Simulation in the School of Medicine, the project has recently won an Association for the Study of Medical Education (ASME) Education Innovation Award.

The ITN feature is represented in this clip. The full ‘21st Century Healthcare' programme is also available to view at:

The training footage for students can be used in a variety of formats, including interactive lectures, virtual reality headsets and web based self-assessment packages. Staff and students from the school have been involved in the creation of the content and will play a key role in all future development.

This project has the potential to work within many different settings and can be transferred to any academic discipline which seeks to increase student experience within restrictive environments.
