Mayo Clinic has a firm belief that the needs of the patient come first and a foundational culture that unites every health care provider, scientist, student, and trainee in a singular mission to provide hope and healing to the world. Through our education activities, we aim to develop the workforce of the future and lifelong learners who are trained on new models of care delivery, and ready to keep pace with changes in technology over their careers. As we move forward in a bold new direction, Mayo Clinic aims to bridge excellence in education and clinical practice across our enterprise by investing in immersive technologies to deliver one- of-a-kind educational and training experiences. It's important to recognize that Mayo Clinic has 3 campuses in 3 states (AZ, FL, and MN) with 65,000+ staff and a College of Medicine & Science that includes 5 distinct schools (School of Graduate Medical Education, Alix School of Medicine, School of Health Sciences, Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, and School of Continuous Professional Development) with 4500+ active learners in 410+ subspeciality programs. In this talk we will discuss Mayo Clinic’s current journey to strategically deploy Extended Reality (XR)-enabled education across our vast and diverse learner populations (i.e., surgical/medical trainees, staff, medical students, nurses, technicians, therapists, and patients). Additionally, we will provide insights into our preliminary work to utilize XR intraoperative navigation of patient-specific 3D data in the operating room using an expert-novice proctoring approach. Lastly, we will overview our new, bold-thinking strategy for establishing proper governance and collaborate leadership in an agile organization that is always learning and evolving — and moving fast — to expand knowledge and create new capabilities that will help transform health care delivery on behalf of patients.

Join Cathy Hackl for a short talk on the State of the Metaverse, followed by an inspiring discussion joined by leading voices featuring Roblox, AB InBev, and Nike. Together, they'll elevate the Metaverse conversation from a buzzword to an actual informed dialogue on the future of the Internet.

And worst of all, we’ve never properly captured and conveyed the energy and highly-dynamic nature of living business systems. These ever-changing, increasingly complex entities cannot be explained in static terms. Yet, we still insist on using primitive static charts and graphics to depict them and continue porting uninspired 3D versions of those obsolete views into XR (as if those are somehow better). No longer. In this session, M. Pell takes us through stunning example after example of how XR is uniquely suited for Visualizing Business in an entirely new light. Like so many other breakthroughs fueled by XR, this critical aspect of our communication looks breathtakingly new, but is really based on simple principles and solid fundamentals. Join M. Pell for an entertaining inside look at the next giant leap forward in global communications – how to finally and properly Visualize Business.
