Abstract: Within medical education virtual reality (VR) environments have been used routinely for training and assessing medical skills (ref) whereas they remain less developed in other fields requiring knowledge of human anatomy. A full understanding of human anatomy requires students to learn a large number of terms which students typically struggle with using a traditional education model. Therefore the aim of this study was to determine whether using VR as an immersive learning opportunity could help students to engage with anatomy material and subsequently whether it may impact their achievement in related assessments.
