Wolters Kluwer, Health, a leading global provider of information and point of care solutions for the healthcare industry has announced the integration of BioDigital XR with Wolters Kluwer Medical Education and Medical Practice expansion. This collaboration will bring extended reality (XR) based medical education solutions to students across the healthcare landscape to enhance their learning curriculum, providing an immersive, safe-to-fail environment with both virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) solutions.
As higher education institutions continue to look for ways to keep up with the expectations of the next generation of students while preparing them for the real world, the digital transformation of medical education has been a major shift. Medical schools, healthcare programs, and residency and trainee programs are increasingly using AR and VR technology as a cost-effective complement to traditional training methods. Virtual reality provides students with an immersive learning experience that allows them to manipulate anatomical structures and better understand the spatial relationships in the human body.
