In healthcare, especially in surgery, proper training is critical. Doctors and surgeons do not spend years in universities and internships for nothing. Practical training is a significant part of their education.
However, surgical practice is difficult to organize, as no medical school will allow inexperienced surgeons to operate on actual patients. Thus, students practice with models or cadavers and only at the advanced stages of their education are allowed to treat people.
Virtual reality and augmented reality can widen the learning opportunities for young surgeons. By setting up surgeries in VR, medical schools can provide more practical training without any risk to patients. Students operating in VR will learn at the muscle level practicing the correct moves and instrument handling
