A new learning paradigm
for medical education


MIS-SIM (Minimally Invasive Surgery Simulator Scenario Editor) is an innovative environment for medical content creators/mentors.
MIS-SIM is a VR simulator that will allow users to create and share with the community virtual tasks personalized to the training needs of learners.
The MIS-SIM scenario editor will be deployed and integrated on the training schedules of two leading European surgical institutions through a pioneer pilot program.

This will include training activities to:
1. teach mentors how to harness the potential of MIS-SIM to create effective learning scenarios;
2. teach residents MIS basic skills in MIS-SIM-based courses;
3. empower medical professionals on designing learning technologies in the hospital.

This activity will plan a series of training courses in 2018 that will take place at the partners' institutions.
Through the data collected in these activities, valorization of MIS-SIM will be demonstrated.
In 2019, further courses will be planned and an expansion roadmap towards the commercialization of MIS-SIM will be defined.

How we address some
EIT Health Key Priorities

Introducing a new VR-based learning paradigm will contribute to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of training technical skills between surgeons. MIS-SIM provides personalised and adaptive learning for medical professionals in patient-free environments thanks to the new form of content creation. It will help to reduce the learning curves and to train more confident professionals. It is well known that minimally invasive techniques favour recuperation, minimise incidents (infections, etc.) and generate more confidence for the patients. This have a positive repercussion on healthcare, with improved services provided to citizens, shorter hospital stays and a reduction of medical errors. MIS-SIM will help to train specific surgeons in specific challenges. The personalised content crea?on will generate dynamic and motivational learning. Boring, static and generic materials? No more!
