Innovation in Medical Training: “Dive! Aesthetic Medicine” | DIVE

Apr 4, 2024 | Works

Technological evolution is radically transforming specialized training as the introduction of virtual reality (VR) revolutionizes the way professionals learn and refine their skills. This is particularly evident in the medical field, especially in the rapidly expanding branch of aesthetic medicine, which caters to an increasingly broad patient audience.

Creating Strong Skills for a Growing Sector

For this reason, a growing number of recent medical graduates decide to pursue a career in aesthetic medicine. Recognizing this need, we at Dive have supported the Humanitas Consortium in taking postgraduate education to a new level: by transferring the skills of experienced doctors into an immersive teaching engine “Dive!” we created the “Dive! Aesthetic Medicine” module specifically dedicated to fillers, offering students an immersive experience that transcends the boundaries of the traditional classroom.

This innovative approach to training has been experimented within a Second Level Master’s program in collaboration with LUMSA and has redefined traditional learning methods by combining academic excellence with the latest technological frontiers. A synergy that has made it possible to develop a cutting-edge training program capable of fully immersing students in a virtual surgical environment where they can safely and effectively practice and perfect the techniques of lip filler injection.

What’s New in “Dive! Aesthetic Medicine”

The training module resulting from the collaboration stands out for several innovative features:

Immersive Realism: Students are immersed in a carefully designed virtual surgical environment that faithfully reproduces the operating room, offering an unprecedented learning experience.
Advanced Interaction: Through the use of the ‘Oculus Quest’ device, students can interact in real-time with virtual surgical tools, improving hand-eye coordination and the precision of injections.
Immediate Feedback: The system provides students with real-time visual and auditory feedback as well as a score based on accuracy and speed, allowing for iterative learning aimed at continuous improvement.
Customization of Difficulty Level: The module offers various levels of difficulty, from the basic level with complete guidance to the advanced level without support, allowing students to progress at their own pace and ability.

Benefits of AR for Training Aesthetic Doctors

The introduction of this technology into postgraduate medical training brings numerous benefits, including:

Risk Reduction: The ability to practice in a virtual environment eliminates the risk associated with initial practical experiences on real patients, improving patient safety.
Accessibility: Students can access training at any time and place, overcoming the logistical and temporal barriers associated with traditional training.
Standardization: The module ensures that all students receive the same level of training and are evaluated with the same standards, ensuring high quality of education.

How Will the Future of Medical Training Change?

The collaboration between Dive and the Humanitas Consortium marks a turning point in medical training, offering an avant-garde methodology that combines educational effectiveness with the latest technologies. This project not only improves the practical skills of learners but also pushes the entire sector towards increasingly high educational standards, anticipating a future where immersive learning will become the norm. But what are the contours of this future? And what features make the “Dive!” training modules the most effective means to experience this innovation firsthand? Let’s discover this together in the second part of the article.
