ICT’s Virtual Patient, along with Medical Virtual Reality Associate Director Skip Rizzo and Computer Scientist Patrick Kenny, will be giving a glimpse into how virtual reality can impact the future of healthcare at the USC Body Computing Conference on Friday, September 24. Rizzo will give an overview of ICT’s work in medical virtual reality. Kenny and the virtual patient will be introducing Dr. Leslie Saxon of the USC Keck School of Medicine and serve as a life-sized, interactive example of how virtual humans can be used in medical settings. The virtual patient project at ICT began as a collaboration with the USC Keck School of Medicine to develop virtual role-players to aid in medical students in training for skills for diagnosing and interviewing patients.
