Educators’ Corner Blog
In the spring of 2015, OtoSim Inc. launched the Compassionate Lending Program to support healthcare trainers who want to improve otoscopy and ophthalmoscopy training in underserved communities.
Our first partnership was with Boston Children’s Hospital to support them on an upcoming outreach program trip to the University Central Hospital of Kigali (CHUK) in Rwanda.
In April 2015, University of Toronto’s (U of T) Lawrence S. Bloomberg Nurse Practitioner students had the opportunity to use the OtoSim 2™ and OphthoSim™ training and simulation systems.
These systems allowed students to gain confidence in their practical otoscopy and ophthalmoscopy skills in order to excel in the clinical environment.
On February 2013, almost 100 second-year University of Toronto (U of T) medical students participated in an optional, intensive, one-hour otoscopy workshop using the OtoSim™—a training and simulation system that is radically changing the way students in Canada and around the world learn this poorly-acquired medical skill.
