The future of medical education

A little glimpse of what medical education might look like in the future brought to us by Second Life, a virtual world where you can listen to bands, play bingo, join an interest group or… take classes from 26 universities that have developed innovative online courses. This is a video of a clinic in Second Life created by Jeremy Kemp. He describes his project as a “walkthrough machinima of a heart sounds exam (ausculatation) simulation with heart sounds and assessment.” Click twice to play. Sound will start once you enter the clinic.
