Virtual Reality Workshop at the University of Barcelona

On October 29th, a virtual reality educational experience was put into practice with 3rd year medical degree students from the Clinical Campus of the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences of the University of Barcelona.

This activity was carried out within a subject coordinated by Dr. Clhoë Ballesté, Ricard Valero and David Paredes.

It is an experience through 360º videos and virtual reality glasses that he develops and an interview with the different members of a patient’s family. It is an immersive learning activity that allows students to put themselves in the shoes of a doctor and live the experience as if it were real. In this way, they have been able to work in much more detail, within virtual reality, the communication of bad news aimed at the relatives of patients.

The activity has been very well received by students.

This virtual reality experience was created by the Donation and Transplantation Institute (DTI) Foundation in conjunction with Immersium Studios.
