Virtual World in Medical education

In this article Hoffman explains how the use of computer are expanding the learning of medical students. I enjoyed this article because we can use some of the activities to teach Spanish or any other language. The simulations activities are great to learn vocabulary.

VW for students with medical profession! Now that is something interesting to hear about. Does that mean students can practice their operation without literally hurting anyone? I wonder how it can work out. Maybe it will be like how a pilot is trained through navigating a driving simulator!? In this sense, I think Virtual World could be very useful for those who have to be trained to excel in a high-risk profession, and thus could possibly be combined with ESP.
