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.



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