Extended Reality Is Radically Changing the World of Medicine

Drs. Mahajan and Cole featured in Medicine at Michigan

Michigan Medicine is at the forefront of the technological revolution that will enhance medical education and patient outcomes.  Dr. Cole is using it to train healthcare students and workers in leadership, teamwork, and communication skills. That’s why he has helped design a virtual reality team training module for cardiac arrest that awards points to learners based not only on the clinical choices they make but also on how well they collaborate and communicate with team members.  Dr. Mahajan is conducting experiments that could make it possible to use the Hololens headsets in an emergency scenario.
