Virtual reality-based assessment and training for clinical oral case presentation
Oral case presentation (OCP) is an essential clinical skill and a primary form of information transfer between physicians. Little attention is given to teaching and evaluating OCP. Especially in internal medicine, the physician is often confronted with the challenge of presenting complex multimorbid cases. We have developed a naturalistic, immersive, 3D virtual reality-based simulation of the ward-round situation in which a physician would typically present a patient case to other physicians. We are testing this simulation for purposes of evaluation and training in OCP.
