October 2018 - Bengaluru, India
An all-new simulation laboratory, within India's government-run Bangalore Medical College & Research Institute (BMCRI) is the recipient of a CAE NeuroVR neurosurgical simulator (the first in the country) which will help students practice open cranial and endoscopic brain surgery within an immersive, VR training environment.
Implemented as part of a multi-million dollar medical education project, and made possible by the dedicated work of the CAE Healthcare Turnkey Solutions team in the region, the Karnataka, India simulation training center is expected to benefit approximately 2,000 students across various healthcare disciplines.
In addition to the neurological training simulator, BMCRI is equipped with a range of CAE Healthcare training solutions (including CAE LearningSpace for center management, CAE Apollo, CAE Lucina, CAE Vimedix and CAE Blue Phantoms, CAE LapVR, CAE EndoVR, CAE BabySIM, and the CAE HPS adult and pediatric patient simulators).
Beneficial Training in Rare Medical Conditions
Because the simulators can realistically mimic pathologies that few medical students might encounter in actual experience, the lab will be of immense benefit by exposing learners to a variety of medical cases. This will better prepare them for when (and, if) they must manage such conditions in their professional lives.
"Simulation is the way forward for bridging the gap between theoretical and practical learning in the safest possible way,” said Dr. Balaji Pai, Professor of Neurosurgery at the college.1
