Osso VR, a specialist in surgical training for surgeons, hospital staff, and sales teams using virtual reality (VR) technology has announced a new partnership with Medical Sales College to help its students increase their surgical knowledge through unlimited, hands-on practice.
Medical Sales College is a licensed and regulated college for medical device sales education, providing comprehensive programmes which include orthobiologics, orthopaedic extremity, reconstruction and trauma, and spine and sports medicine. Students work towards a specific skill set that positions them for a career in device sales.
Through the new partnership with Osso VR students can now access surgeon-level experiences in VR on how to use and support the devices they will be selling.
“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 in a statement. ”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.”
With the implementation of Osso VR’s technology at the school, Medical Sales College hopes to offer students an extra edge in this competitive industry by providing additional hands-on practice far more than the average rep in training. Students and administrators using Osso VR have access to analytics dashboards, receiving feedback regarding their run-throughs and tailored guidance to help them reach proficiency.
“Success in the OR starts with education for both the surgeons and sales reps, and Medical Sales College offers the most robust training and placement options available in this important career,” said Justin Barad, MD, CEO of Osso VR. “Gaps in training are leading to increased complication rates for patients as newer and more complex technologies and procedures come to market. We are thrilled to have a forward-thinking, innovative partner in Medical Sales College that understands how critical it is to address training gaps and empower new reps entering the market to better assist surgical teams.”
