Technology Improvement: Virtual Reality for Health Professions Education

This project proposes to purchase 8 virtual reality (VR) headsets along with a portable charging dock to bring VR into classrooms where health information is being studied. Having this portable VR setup will meet a growing demand to have students use VR together to learn about issues such as bias, health information literacy, functions of the human body, and the on-demand use of counseling using VR. This VR equipment will provide more equitable access of such technologies to those in the health professions.
