Mentally ill avatars
Medical students at Ruhr-Universität Bochum (RUB) will have the opportunity to conduct psychiatric interviews with avatars in future. "This will enable them to practise with patients presenting the full range of symptoms and degrees of severity and to broaden the panorama," explains project manager, Associate Professor Paraskevi Mavrogiorgou from the clinic for psychiatry, psychotherapy and preventive medicine. Students wearing a virtual reality headset (VR headset) will be able to meet those avatars in a three-dimensional space—or, as experts call it, "exploration." The clinic is planning to start using avatars in the summer semester 2020.
