Great news everyone! The team of SSES has joined Erasmus+ project MedTrain3DModSim, which has just been launched. The goal of the project is to improve preclinical education and practical training of medical students through the use of specifically tailored 3D models, including physical 3D printed models, training in virtual reality, and also augmented reality applications.

You should definitely go check out the project website and its Facebook page.

We will keep you updated and, hopefully, we will soon be able to see the results of the project reflected in SSES curriculum.
