IIHS opens XR and High-Fidelity Simulation Labs to go beyond traditional boundaries

The International Institute of Health Sciences (IIHS), the leading health education institute in South Asia, recently opened an XR Lab and High-Fidelity Simulation Lab, showcasing their commitment to delivering a leading experience that transcends traditional boundaries. 

The newly opened XR lab of IIHS, which is equipped with cutting-edge virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), and mixed reality (MR) technologies, is a testament to their commitment to delivering digital experiences to boost learning in students.

This dynamic learning environment stimulates curiosity and enhances the comprehension of complex theories and procedures.

In the XR Lab, students are active participants in their own education instead of being mere observers.

Every experience such as performing delicate surgeries, diagnosing complex conditions, or responding to emergencies, is a stepping stone towards mastery.

With the guidance of well-trained instructors, students navigate through these virtual realms with confidence, embracing an innovative educational experience at a global perspective, reaching towards the pinnacle of success.

Over the past few years, IIHS has recognised the crucial importance of well-rounded practical skills honed through hands-on experience than theoretical knowledge to fulfill the future demands of healthcare education.

Therefore, IIHS established the High-Fidelity Simulation Lab, which comes into play with state-of-the-art simulators that breathe life into medical training.

These human-like mannequins blur the lines between simulation and reality, offering students an unparalleled opportunity to practicse procedures, make critical decisions, and witness the consequences in a risk-free environment. The Lab also plays a pivotal role in redefining learning experience. One of its key advantages is its ability to re-create complex and high-stress situations that students may encounter in their careers. The students of IIHS can now practice their skills in decision-making pertaining to situations such as performing a life-saving surgery, responding to a medical emergency, or managing a crisis situation using the novel facilities in this lab without posing a risk to real patients. “We believe that the new XR Hub and the High-Fidelity Simulation Lab is a catalyst for transformation.

They represent a paradigm shift in healthcare education, where innovation meets imagination, and the future is shaped by those bold enough to embrace it.

So, step into our world, and let your journey to mastery begin. Armed with these new facilities at IIHS, we strive to nurture our graduates with not just knowledge, but practical skills refined through immersive experiences.

It will help them to become the vanguards of change in hospitals, clinics, and communities around the world.”  Chief Executive Officer of IIHS, Dr. Kithsiri Edirisinghe stated.
