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%|
|Feedback||70-80%||10 - 20%|
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.
