VR simulations allow for immersive experiential learning and simulation-based challenges. Learners practice interviewing, assessment, diagnosis, and treatment skills with a virtual patient in the simulation environment. Changes in skills and learner behavior occur during the simulation or via contemplation during a debriefing. A balanced approach, emphasizes challenge, practice, positive feedback, and encouragement. Interactive, realistic challenge enhances motivation which in turn enhances enthusiasm for learning the topic and subsequent skills mastery. Learning via VR simulations offers the following advantages over simulations using actors to play standardized patients:
