The story

Belarusian State Medical University (BSMU) is implementing virtual reality (VR) for immersive learning.

A VR app is reportedly under development that will teach BSMU students how to listen to the internal sounds of the body using a stethoscope.

The app will provide simulated lab exercises and patient interactions, with the aim of giving doctors in training a platform on which to examine hearts and lungs in a virtual environment.

Technology startup Proven Solution will work with BSMU to develop the VR app. They plan to incorporate student feedback for new apps in the future, so that they can develop a full software suite to enable students to carry out complete medical check-ups.

APNNEWS quotes Eduard Docenko, head of the propaedeutics department at BSMU, as saying that, through the partnership, the university aims “to invest in reshaping the delivery of education so that our students are prepared for a more technologically advanced workplace”.

He adds: “Our partnership with Proven Solution helps strengthen our commitment and enables us to collectively reimagine the use of technology in introducing newer methods of learning.”

Proven Solution is focused on implementing the technology developed by brands such as VR and augmented reality (AR)-focused Proven Reality, under the umbrella of a holding company that assists third parties in expanding and investing in the Middle East, according to its website.

Zaid Al Mashari, group chief executive officer of the holding company, Proven Arabia, adds that the company is “excited” to partner with BSMU to “continuously improve the students’ knowledge and provide them with newer ways of learning, with the help of VR technologies”.
