OtoSim 2™ otoscopy training & simulation system



 

  

 

OtoSim Inc. continues to innovate with a new simulation and training technology for otolaryngology: OtoSim 2™ is the upgraded version of OtoSim™ with new software and hardware, and increased capabilities.

 

 

"95% of graduating medical students do not feel comfortable with their level of otology skills at the end of their clerkship1."

 

Many professionals can relate to this in reflecting on the inadequacies of their otoscopy training. There is a need to fix this!
Following a three-hour group session using OtoSim™ Otoscopy Training & Simulation System, medical students increased their accuracy in the diagnosis of various ear pathologies from 54% to 78%2. Click here to view the study.
 
 
 

 

OTOSIM 2™ KEY FEATURES:

  • Verif student progress via the instrumented otoscope. Trainees can point with this device to complete the learning feedback loop.
  • Expand student knowledge through reviewing 380 high-resolution images from the Hawke Library to instruct, practice, and test students
  • Save instructor time by connecting up to 14 OtoSim™ units to a single trainer laptop to effectively instruct groups at the same time
  • Supplement classroom instruction with 150 pre-annotated images for self-directed learning
  • Improve viewer retention through immersive full-screen experience with a simple, easy-to-use graphical user interface
  • Increase student capability through advanced quizzes with randomized, realistic clinical scenarios that test both medical and patient interaction skills
  • Build student confidence through the use of the instrumented otoscope, allowing students to practice and improve their otoscopic technique

Throughout the history of medicine, clinical learning has been based on imitating the actions of others. Medical students are expected to learn complex medical tasks by watching other clinicians perform that task. This is known as the “see one, do one” approach, or the apprenticeship model. Certainly, the “see one, do one” approach to learning will continue to have its place. In many cases, however, experts within healthcare see simulation as an alternative, or at least a stepping-stone, between classroom learning and clinical practice. This means change.
