A new medical school collaboration

Augmented Reality has the potential to enhance the clinical skills development for a range of healthcare professional students medical, pharmacy, nursing and dentistry students who need to be able to demonstrate competency as part of their clinical and practical assessments. Building on our experiences with the Prescribing Skills ibooks and drawing upon new expertise within the team we are currently working collaboratively with medics and pharmacists to develop AR resources that reinforce practical skills development for OSCEs.

Using 3D object recognition on iPads, users can access overlaid virtual imagery, supporting media and textual instructions shadowing them through practical clinical procedures. Additionally, students will be able to interact with AR ready posters around the clinical skills labs enabling linking to video demonstrations and formatting testing of individual learning may be achieved via associated quizzes.
