  • Gain perspective on what it is like to have a disease or impairment

  • Understand disease presentation through a first-person patient perspective

  • Improve patient-provider communication & teamwork skills

  • Increase interest in pursuing healthcare professions for serving vulnerable patient populations

What is the Embodied Labs Learning Framework?



Prepare to embody your patient by taking a pre-assessment and discover your existing knowledge by answering questions from the Embodied Labs facilitation guide.



Embody your resident by using a VR-ready laptop to log on to Embodied Labs’ application and by putting on a VR headset. (See recommended list of VR hardware).



Reflect on how the VR experiences changed your views, mindset, and knowledge about living with a particular disease, pathology, or condition.
