MediSimVR partners with Manipal University

Manipal University’s MBBS students will be exposed to Virtual Reality (VR) clinical training using MediSim’s Virtual Reality Skill Training Simulation

MediSimVR, a med-tech company has collaborated with the Manipal University College Malaysia to provide advanced medical training to MBBS students in India.

Through this collaboration, Manipal University’s MBBS students will be exposed to Virtual Reality (VR) clinical training during years 3 to 5 of their MBBS using MediSim’s Virtual Reality Skill Training Simulation. This solution was conceived by MediSim to address the needs of the medical industry at the grassroots level. This technology has been fully functioning at Medisim’s VR-based skill training laboratory in Pondicherry, India which also happens to be India’s first laboratory of such nature.

Professor Dr Jayakumar Gurusamy, Dean of the Faculty of Medicine at Manipal, said, “VR provides an inspiring and immersive clinical experience for the development of technical competencies, such as surgical skills for our students. Learning through practical experience by incorporating visual stimuli with MediSim VR’s virtual experience improves students’ interaction within the classroom and boosts knowledge retention with enhanced clarity in understanding.”

Dr Adith Chinnaswami, Co-founder and COO, MediSim VR said, “We are very happy to be working with the Manipal group, which has been a longstanding pioneer in the field of medicine. Being a Surgeon and well aware of Manipal’s medical pedigree, I see this as the perfect partnership to launch the first such fully automated Virtual Reality Skill Lab in Malaysia and look forward to maintaining the high standards MUCM sets towards its students’ education right being part of the curriculum.”

Manipal would be installing MediSim’s VR kiosks at her campus so that it is easily accessible to her MBBS students as part of their learning experience. “It complements the traditional rich clinical experience our students experience at the hospitals. Harvard Business review indicates a 230 per cent improvement over traditional training methods and VR-trained participants are 20% faster and more accurate,” added Professor Dr Jayakumar.
