Using Virtual Reality & 3D Technologies to Expand the Health Professions Pipeline in Southern Nevada

Our goal is to spark prospective students’ interest in medical and health sciences careers through the use of virtual reality (VR) and 3D technologies, with a focus on anatomy, basic sciences, and clinical sciences software programs. In addition, National Library of Medicine (NLM) databases, such as MedlinePlus and PubMed, will be highlighted in order to increase awareness of health information resources for health professionals, and to better integrate the role of libraries in health professions education and training.
