Osso VR Uses Virtual Reality to Train Medical Device Sales Students

Osso VR has partnered with the Medical Sales College so students can now access surgeon-level experiences in VR.

Osso VR, a virtual reality surgical training technology company, announced today its partnership with the Medical Sales College, the only licensed and regulated college for world-class medical device sales education. As the first medical sales educational institution to embrace this innovative and emerging technology, students can now access surgeon-level experiences in VR on how to use and support the devices they will be selling. Osso VR’s surgical training technology provides on-demand, educational experiences that are effective, repeatable, and measurable. This gives the students, across all campuses, the ability to practice one-on-one or as a group more often in a hands-on virtual environment.

“Many people don’t realize how crucial the medical sales rep’s role is during a surgery,” said Jim Rogers, CEO at Medical Sales College. “They are in the OR helping guide the surgeon from start to finish, so it is very important they get practice in that environment. We are always looking for new ways to better prepare our students and maximize their chances of job placement post-graduation. Eventually, they will have a direct influence on surgical outcomes, and now, they can be confident that they will be ready for the challenging environment of the operating room.”
