PrecisionOS, Mass General team up for orthopedic residency education


Virtual reality training provider PrecisionOS will collaborate with Boston-based Massachusetts General Hospital to provide immersive virtual reality training to Harvard University's combined orthopedic residency program in Boston. 

Members of Mass General and the Harvard residency program will work with PrecisionOS for three years to develop VR for foot and ankle and hand and wrist training programs. 

Once the module is developed, it will be accessible to medical education programs across the globe that use the PrecisionOS platform. 

"MGH is committed to the understanding of orthopedic health while creating novel approaches to foot/ankle and hand/wrist education, technology and innovation. As such, we're looking forward to the power of the metaverse to help advance our educational priorities," Mitchel Harris, MD, chief of the department of orthopedic surgery at Massachusetts General Hospital, said in an Oct. 19 press release from PrecisionOS.
