Virtualmedicalcoaching - Because fantastic education doesn't just happen

Virtualmedicalcoaching-Best medical imaging training center in New Zealand

Virtual Medical Coaching offers you the world’s first true Virtual Reality application for learning radiographic positions and principles. In the radiation free simulator, the user can perform radiographic examinations as in the real world, critique the resulting images and get instant metric feedback in a way that is impossible in conventional education. The simulator allows for unlimited training in the immersive, safe environment. In addition, our adaptive e-coaching modules move e-learning from linear training to a more sophisticated program able to adapt to learners’ needs.
Combining practical skills assessment, classroom training, and e-coaching is integral to Virtual Medical Coaching’s design.

Coaching describes the process used to transport people from where they are to where they want to be. Joyce and Showers in the Journal of Education offer the following table:.

Training Skills attained Transfer to job
Theory 10 - 20% 5-10%
Demonstration 30-35% 5-10%
Practice 60-70% 5-10%
Feedback 70-80% 10 - 20%
Coaching 80-90% 80-90%

As shown, people learn by listening, reading, and having experiences and most people report deeper learning from having a strong active component. There is even a saying “practice makes perfect” but that’s not the end of it, really as Vince Lombardi says “perfect practice makes perfect”. That’s why at Virtual Medical Coaching the coaching element and metric feedback can be as much or as little as you like. This allows novices to get guided through the correct steps and have good habits ingrained while letting more experienced students have the freedom to experiment by deliberately changing the exposures or positioning to see the result.

One of the most exciting initiatives in my time here has been your development of the VR tool

Daniel Bowman

As a student, it can be hard to get hands on experience and the practical labs may not always be available. I feel having something like this would be very useful in learning the general positioning, and for preparing for OSCEs.

Way better than the computer simulation software we used at my school. I liked it!

That is amazing!

I wish something like this had been available during my education.

I think the virtual learning is fascinating. I find this very helpful being a student. The simulations really allow you to play with your techniques, and or trauma/difficult patients.

Those are the instances where while I’m at my clinical’s I don’t have the luxury to play around and find what works best for me. Either due to radiation protection standards and or immobile/trauma patients require quick reactions, which is where the senior techs take over.

Sasha Leuty

This would be very useful as a learning tool. Great way to get hands on without exposing a real patient. I know it would help me as I am a hands on learner.

Hannah Hammond

That’s amazing. I think it would really benefit 1st-year students in particular as it would help to consolidate students’ knowledge and prepare them for clinical placement.

We’re finally going to be free of the 2D monitor. It’s been a window into virtual reality that we’ve all looked into for 30 or 40 years

The experience is so important: Tell stories. The more immersive, the more we retain. It’s about recollection
