Reference Center University of Missouri Kansas City School of MedicineFounded in 1971, UMKC's School of Medicine has always been ahead of the curve in training physicians. The School’s innovative curriculum provides students with early and continuous patient-care experience and fully integrates liberal arts/humanities, basic sciences and clinical medicine. The learning environment de-emphasizes competition and encourages learning through close faculty-student interaction and student partnerships.
Reference Center Orthopaedic Research Institute of Bournemouth University, UKThe Orthopaedic Research Institute of Bournemouth University is the first place in the world to train on their own VirtaMed ArthroS™ hip simulator. Profs. Rob Middleton and Tom Wainwright from BUORI know how difficult it is to train for the keyhole surgery that hip arthroscopy needs, and want to provide their trainees the opportunity to do so. The orthopedic surgeons at BUORI continue to help VirtaMed develop the hip to the needs of physicians.
Reference Center University of Utah, USAThe University of Utah wanted to enhance surgical education in the orthopedic department. The goal is simply to use the latest educational means available for the training of young surgeons, i.e. virtual reality simulators. After comparing the different simulators currently on the market and their training abilities, the decision was clear. Watch the video below and see why Dr. Burks of the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery prefers the VirtaMed ArthroS™ arthroscopy simulator over other training tools.
Reference Center Würzburg, GermanyAs the very first hospital in Germany, König-Ludwig-Haus uses the arthroscopy simulator VirtaMed ArthroS™ for the education of resident physicians. The simulator is an inherent part of the curriculum and receives positive feedback from young surgeons. Dr. Stephan Reppenhagen also perceives a positive effect on the learning curve of young physicians, way before their first guided procedure in the operating room.
Reference Center Balgrist University Hospital, SwitzerlandBalgrist University Hospital wants to provide thorough hands-on medical training for new practitioners without compromising patient experience and safety. This is why they helped us develop the VirtaMed ArthroS™ orthopedics simulator.
SFA and CFCOT CollaborationSince 1 November 2017, every surgical resident in France is supposed to get training on a simulator. To determine the best approach for arthroscopy, the French College of Orthopedic Surgery (CFCOT) is conducting a nationwide study in arthroscopic training methods in collaboration with the Francophone Society of Arthroscopy (SFA) and VirtaMed. The second data set will be collected during a tour to several University Hospitals, concluding at the Western Orthopedic Society (SOO) Congress in Rennes on 28–30 June, 2018.
AANA Exclusive PartnershipThe Arthroscopy Association of North America (AANA) and VirtaMed have signed a two-year collaboration agreement making VirtaMed the preferred and exclusive partner for Virtual Reality Simulation training. ANNA and VirtaMed will work together to advance and improve the training of arthroscopic surgery skills and standards for proficiency-based training curricula by leveraging the latest virtual reality simulation technology and ANNA’s expertise in Arthroscopic Surgery education.
