VirtaMed ArthroS™ impresses at a training course on Pacific Islands

Dear partners, clients, friends and innovation enthusiasts,

VirtaMed strives to advance medical training around the world, and this June we had the chance to be a part of an orthopedic training course on the Solomon Islands. The Pacific Island Orthopaedic Association (PIOA) trained local doctors with a VirtaMed ArthroS™ knee simulator, and the participants experienced both rapid improvement and sheer joy of learning.

Another topic in this newsletter is our partnership with KARL STORZ – an example of our goal to help medical industry players create new, customized simulation projects. We will also introduce you to a Copernicus study by the Arthroscopy Association of North America (AANA), focusing on the benefits of proficiency-based learning.

VirtaMed ArthroS™ helps train Pacific Island doctors

VirtaMed lent an ArthroS™ simulator with a knee model to Pacific Island Orthopaedic Association in June 2015. PIOA used the simulator during a training course for doctors from the Pacific Islands. "It was a wonderful opportunity for trainee doctors to learn valuable new skills in a realistic setting", says Dr. Patrick Houasia, Director of Orthopaedics at the National Referrar Hospital in Honiara, Solomon Islands.
