MSR , the Israel Center for Medical Simulation is the largest ‎center in Israel, training and/or testing 20,000 healthcare ‎professionals annually.‎

MSR aims to better prepare these professionals by means of ‎simulation-based training in order to reduce errors, test ‎competency and thus save lives. The VR and AR fields are ‎just now beginning to enter healthcare education and ‎training. I will discuss the difference between what there is ‎and what we need and the lessons learned so far; the need for ‎AI, VR and AR in medical training and evaluation and the ‎advantages, disadvantages‎ and the user aspect of adapting ‎these technologies. ‎
