Leveraging Interactive Games

Duke University School of Medicine and Virtual Heroes have signed a framework agreement on a partnership encompassing a broad range of initiatives to leverage interactive game technologies for medical education and training.

The multi-faceted partnership will include initiatives in the following areas: health-care team communication training; medical device and pharma product education; patient education; medical recertification; clinical trial education; CME courses; and health-care quality assurance training.

The HumanSim platform by Virtual Heroes will soon enable health-care professionals to sharpen their assessment and decision-making skills without risk to patients in realistic, challenging, immersive 3-D environments. Virtual Heroes is creating HumanSim by taking the most advanced game technology on the planet (Epic Games’ Unreal Engine 3) and integrating it with a real-time physiologic-pharmacologic model for an unprecedented experiential learning experience.
