Event description
Not so far in the future, doctors might prescribe a virtual beach vacation to calm aches and pains, in lieu of taking a pill.

About this event

For decades, scientists have been quietly discovering the surprising health benefits of virtual reality (VR) for ailments ranging from burn injuries, to stroke, to PTSD, to schizophrenia. Over ten thousand studies reveal that VR has an uncanny ability to calm pain, steady nerves, and boost mental health. VR is helping to deliver babies, enabling soldiers to cope with the mental scars of war, and reminding doctors that patients are not broken machines, but are people whose subjective lives matter. VR is not just for gamers anymore; it is a new type of mind-body medicine.

Developed by the Cedars-Sinai Virtual Medicine program with generous support from the Marc and Sheri Rapaport Fund for Digital Health Sciences and Precision Health, the annual Virtual Medicine (vMed) Conference is a two-day symposium that convenes the brightest minds in Medical Extended Reality (MXR). Attendees learn from case studies, didactic lectures, patient vignettes, and simulation workshops.

Virtual Medicine is intended for a wide range of stakeholders seeking to learn about the implementation, outcomes, and cost-effectiveness of Medical Extended Reality (MXR) in clinical practice and the role of MXR in medical education and simulation.

Participants include clinicians using MXR for patient care, patients exploring the benefits of MXR as a complementary therapy, hospitals and clinics evaluating the health economics of starting an MXR program, industry partners developing MXR hardware and software solutions, journalists investigating the latest advances in MXR, and investors seeking to learn the evidence and ROI for MXR products and services.
