TAMPA, Fla. — The University of South Florida’s Center for Advanced Medical Learning and Simulation (USF CAMLS) is teaming up with Tampa-based company Immertec to bring virtual teaching into another dimension.

USF is testing a new technology where students watch medical procedures remotely using stereoscopic goggles.

That gives them a sense of three dimensions while communicating with the instructor in real time.

If successful, doctors see this as opening doors to all kinds of applications from teaching procedures to anyone living anywhere, to even assisting paramedics in the field giving virtual instructions.
