Accelerate skill acquisition and surgical readiness.

Providing a foundational medical education while building practical skills has become a challenge for medical institutions. Duty-hour restrictions, the rapid advancements in new technology and medical implants have all led to traditional learning methods falling behind on training the next generation of surgeons. A significant percentage of surgical residents report they do not feel ready to independently perform procedures upon completion of their training.1,2 Virtual reality training represents an accessible, cost-effective and deliberate practice methodology to help residents and practicing surgeons reach a competency threshold or achieve surgical mastery.


PrecisionOS currently has established partnerships with ten medical institutions in North America, including the University of British Columbia, University of Toronto, SIGN International and the Mayo Clinic. The effectiveness of PrecisionOS VR training has been recognized by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. The company submitted and recently received approval for the use of its training for Continuing Medical Education (CME).

“This is clearly an essential technological application to surgical practice and is an incredibly powerful tool.
Surgeons have the ability to learn techniques without putting the patient at risk.”

“Virtual reality represents a disruptive technology that could have huge impact on training of residents and fellows.”
