California Health Sciences University’s College of Osteopathic Medicine has announced a new collaboration with Case Western Reserve University to utilize its HoloAnatomy software suite with Microsoft HoloLens 2 devices.

The Case Western School of Medicine developed the 3D holographic anatomy program in 2015 to expand students’ opportunities to examine the intricacies of the human body. HoloAnatomy, as it is known, allows students to examine every organ and system from every angle and view it together as a class.

“We are excited to be partnering with innovative schools like [California Health Sciences University] as they imagine the future of medical education,” said Mark Griswold, Case Western professor and one of the faculty leaders for HoloAnatomy. “Tools like Microsoft HoloLens offer students new ways of seeing and collaborating, which — we have found — also accelerates their learning.”

The Clovis medical school is constructing a 20,000-square-foot Simulation Center where medical students will wear Microsoft HoloLens 2 headsets to study, interact and learn with the body’s structures, organs and systems.

“The HoloAnatomy curriculum that Case Western Reserve University developed for use with Microsoft HoloLens is truly remarkable and has been proven to be highly effective,” said Dr. John Graneto, dean of the CHSU College of Osteopathic Medicine. “We are proud to be one of the first partner universities with this prestigious program to offer innovative anatomy education technology to our Valley medical students.”

The Simulation Center will be located on the new campus currently under construction at 250 Alluvial Ave. in Clovis. The ribbon cutting ceremony for the new medical school with Simulation Center facilities is anticipated for spring 2020.
