U. Central Florida uses holograms to train medical students

The leading higher education news site’s Emily Bamforth wrote about the launch of PORTL as a teaching tool at the University of Central Florida. “Sharing patients’ lived experiences helps our students really understand what it’s like for that individual as they go through their activities of daily living,” said Dr. Bari Hoffman of UCF.
The hologram software also includes “caregiver stories,” which are designed to teach students studying social work to use their insights to inform treatment and provide support, Hoffman said.
