Since 2019


3 x 6-metre cylinders

Med Learning Group, a division of Ultimate Medical Academy, is a full-service accredited medical education company. It focuses on developing and implementing continuing education that improves the ability of healthcare professionals (HCPs) to provide optimal care to their patients.

The organisation is the proud owner of three Igloo immersive cylinders that have been used since 2019 to deliver continued medical education (CME) to healthcare professionals across a variety of topics and disciplines, including:

  • Oncology
  • Neurology
  • Psychiatry
  • Infectious diseases
  • Immunology
  • Cardiovascular
  • Respiratory
  • Ophthalmology
  • Transplant
  • And new medical advancements in these

Each cylinder is equipped with 3D projectors. At shows, delegates are handed a pair of active-shutter 3D glasses, so that they can almost reach out and touch the content they’re viewing.

So that Med Learning Group can get the most out of the technology, we provided training on the setup, running, and derigging of the cylinders, enabling Med Learning Group to deploy them wherever it chooses.

And with the ability to brand the cylinders with new covers for any and every event, the Igloo cylinders make for an eye-catching showpiece that attendees can’t help but be drawn to.

Med Learning Group’s educational programmes have seen considerable success, with its VR Rooms noted as adding to the learning experience. Highlights include:

  • 93% of learners identified a commitment to a practise change based on the education
  • A 31% gain in knowledge - with 81% answering knowledge-based questions correctly after the activity compared to 62% beforehand
  • More than 9 out of 10 participants agreed that they would recommend the programme to their colleagues
  • 98% of participants indicated the VR content enhanced the learning experience
  • 90% of participants indicated the VR content would improve recall of lessons learned
