Immersive VR Trainings for Medical Education

Michael Barrie is an emergency physician currently living in Richmond, Virginia where I work at a busy community hospital emergency department. Previously, I was on faculty at The Ohio State University where I developed an interest in technology in education. This interest lead me to explore developing virtual reality experiences for teaching medical students and resident physicians. When I left academic medicine, I joined the team at SimX, where I serve on their medical oversight board to help build simulations in VR for nurses, doctors, medics, and the military. It is very rewarding to be working on cutting edge education technology, and to see the the student excitement using the technology for the first time.
