The Nashville-based Vanderbilt University Medical Center orthopedic residency program partnered with Osso VR to use the virtual reality training platform in surgical education.

1. Other orthopedic surgery residency programs using Osso VR include:

  • Long Island Jewish Medical Center in Queens, N.Y.
  • Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons in New York City
  • David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA
  • Harvard Medical School in Boston
  • Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City

2. Osso VR is focused on eliminating training gaps for orthopedic and spine procedures.

3. Resident assessment is currently based on measures of knowledge through standardized testing, but trainees' surgical skills are still predominantly assessed through subjective mentor observation. Osso VR provides another way to measure surgical skills.
