Clinical simulators have expanded into the veterinary sector!
Yesterday’s press release announces that “The Cornell University Center for Advanced Computing (CAC) is assisting the College of Veterinary Medicine in the development of robotic pets (robo-pets) for Cornell’s new veterinary simulation center, the first to incorporate robotic high-fidelity canine and feline simulators. Read more from the Cornell press release “Cornell scientists develop next generation robo-pets”.
The Cornell Chronicle online news page further explains that “Cornell’s new simulation center includes two fully equipped exam rooms, two rooms for live video-feed observation and debriefing, and space for storage and developing new models, like a new robotic cat and a more advanced dog.”
A more advanced canine simulator named “Butch” is already in the works, which I am sure will be an amazing learner tool with international success!
