JAMES HAYES

A New Zealand Innovator of the Year semi-finalist in 2021 and winner of the Microsoft Supreme Prize for developing and implementing innovative, world-first, Virtual Reality training in 2020 James Hayes is the Founder of Virtual Medical Coaching, and he is reinventing the way healthcare students learn their skills.

During his time as a lecturer, James could see a more immersive way for students to learn. His teaching experience, combined with his prior clinical roles, led him to create the world’s first Edtech company which specializes in Virtual Reality simulation software, Big Data, artificial intelligence, and adaptive learning.

The technology combines VR, big data analytics, and artificial intelligence (AI) to allow students to learn complex or dangerous tasks in a safe, immersive and realistic environment. James is proud to be bringing together New Zealand’s highest level of developers to pioneer this world-class, student-centric healthcare education platform.
