New Virtual Reality and Spatial Computing Applications to Empower, Upskill and Reskill Medical Professionals in a Post-Pandemic Era

More than 1 billion jobs, almost one-third of all jobs worldwide, are likely to be transformed by technology in the next decade, according to OECD estimates. In addition, 5 billion people today lack access to proper surgical and anesthesia care and current training models cannot meet this demand. This growing need for continuous upskill and reskill becomes even more crucial in the post COVID-19 pandemic era. Virtual Reality (VR) and spatial computing technologies can pose as the next final frontier regarding medical psychomotor/cognitive training, education and empowerment. VR can provide the means for remote qualitative education (knowledge) and training (skills), using affordable technology with personalized, on-demand and smooth learning curves. Based on recent major advances in the field of neuroscience, "VR shares with our brain the same basic mechanism: embodied simulations", there is a new emerging field of medical VR psychomotor/cognitive education and training applications that can upskill or reskill trainees. They can facilitate continuous learning, provide curriculum programs and self-improvement opportunities that both expand medical professionals’ abilities as well as minimize skill gaps in their training. Such modern spatial computing applications are based on latest advances on real-time 3D graphics, computer vision, novel algebraic representations, simulation models, gamification, analytics, deep learning and 5G cloud edge computing, that allow intelligent education & training and further optimization/maximization of the desired learning outcomes.
