This includes surgeons, trainees, industry sales representatives and nurses. Through lectures, participants will learn about the current state of education, limitations of conventional training and the proposed benefits of virtual reality. Participants will also undertake a detailed review of pre-surgical planning, rehearsal and the value of virtual reality in decision making, implant selection and relevant steps for insertion.

Learning Objectives:
  1. To understand conventional surgical training and its limitations;
  2. To appreciate the current state of immersive medical education and how virtual reality can play a significant role for both all members of the healthcare team (including support from industry);
  3. To engage in deliberate practice and pre-surgical planning and discuss evidence supporting the above.
