Florida Medical Program Introducing Virtual Reality

Virtual reality is increasingly being utilized across different areas, including education.

Pharmacology students at the University of South Florida will soon get to peek inside almost any organ in the body, utilizing special virtual reality goggles.

“Really what put it together for me was looking at what millennials want, what they’re already used to, and how they’re learning,” Dr. Kevin Sneed,┬áthe dean of the College of Pharmacy, told Fox 13.

That aspect of the program will start in the fall, but another aspect started last year.

It enables students to use virtual reality made possible by the school outside of the classroom.

“They can learn in multiple platforms, whether it might be at home, it might be in a library, it may be a Starbucks,” said Sneed.
