Medical Education in Singapore Goes Holographic with Mixed Reality from Microsoft

An 11 January post on the Microsoft Singapore website describes how Microsoft’s “three-dimensional holographic technology,” has been brought to the “NUS Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine.” According to the post, the partnership “spans NUS Medicine, the National University Health System, and Microsoft,” adding “mixed reality to the learning experience; named Project Polaris.”

In addition to the educational value of the programme, “Holomedicine” technology is being implemented in hospital settings “in Singapore with the aim to enhance patient care.”

The post continues: “Polaris is part of a larger programme called Project Horizon, which consists of more initiatives like Project Delphinus and Project Mira. These aim to train students in clinical soft skills and clinical anatomy respectively, positioning NUS Medicine as the first in Southeast Asia to introduce holographic mixed reality as a teaching tool to train medical and nursing students.” Richard Koh, National Technology Officer, Microsoft Singapore said, “From delivering better healthcare experiences at the frontlines to helping neurosurgeons keep patients better informed of what could happen during their surgeries, technology has been an empowering tool for healthcare workers as they protect and save the lives of patients.”
