Virtual patients can transform psychiatry education

'Medical educators in psychiatry may enhance psychiatric training education by discovering ways to incorporate virtual reality into curricula.....educators could consider programming virtual patients and simulators to mimic psychotropic medication side effects, delirium, or drug intoxications. As artificial intelligence evolves, trainees may utilise virtual patients for psychotherapy skill development. Continued research into how integrated technology affects the trainee’s attitude and patient care outcomes remains vital for future advancement'

Ownself_Can's flagship product Virtual Integrated Patient (VIP), was built on this very foundation to enhance trainee's clinical reasoning skills and thereby improve the patient-centred outcome.
