The characterisation of a virtual reality system to improve the quality and to reduce the gap between information technology and medical education

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Contemporary medical training is hindered by an excessive amount of information provided to students through mainly traditional teaching methods yet the younger generations are accustomed to digital data and information on-demand. As such they have developed a fully customised manner of learning, which in turn requires a new, innovative and equally customised teaching method. This inherited customisation and accelerated manner of learning stems from contemporary lifestyle trends. As such, a reduced learning curve requires innovative and efficient teaching methods, which comply with existing curriculums, yet facilitate the contemporary learning mantra.
