About the sponsor

SimforHealth

SimforHealth is a publisher of innovative digital solutions for the initial and ongoing training of healthcare professionals. SimforHealth teams offer immersive and interactive training solutions, including virtual consultations, real-time 3D simulators and virtual reality. Developed by SimforHealth, MedicActiV is the first digital platform to offer virtual clinical cases.

This allows: on the one hand, all healthcare professionals to acquire knowledge as part of initial or continuous training, and on the other hand, healthcare educational institutions to create and disseminate their own clinical cases. This model of sharing and disseminating healthcare knowledge attempts to respond to the problems of access and updating healthcare knowledge.
