Simulation Sensations for Student Surgeons (supported by RACS)


Join us for the biggest workshop MDSC has ever seen – we have simulations in virtual reality, ENT surgery, laparoscopic techniques and arthroscopic techniques! Our simulations will instantly transport you to an operating theatre where you will be in charge and be able to get a glimpse into the world of surgery.
Experience immersive VR anatomical simulations of the heart, eyes, brain and more! Then use our 3D headsets to perform virtual surgery with real life tactile feedback as you drill a hole into the skull. Prepare to get hands on using a laparoscope and arthroscope to carefully extract pathologies from our models. Cutting edge technology for more than just cutting!

This workshop is proudly supported and presented by The Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (RACS) and VRLS@unimelb.
