Virtual reality presents medical professionals with the opportunity to explore and experience surgical procedures in a manner that's both noninvasive and entirely safe, prompting the creators at Side Effects Asia Pacific to continue to develop immersive environments that doctors can use as a training tool for students.

The company's new system will enable trainees to experience realistic emergency situations that can accurately test a student's ability to make decisions under stressful circumstances. The simulated surgical scenarios offer the trainees insight into the high-pressure and emotional process of emergency medical treatments that medical school can't always prepare one for. In addition to the hands-on practice, the virtual reality system provides instructors with a comprehensive analysis of the trainees' strengths and points of development, allowing individuals to practice at a personalized pace.
