Kaitlyn, an Engaged Learning and McNair Fellow, has worked as a research assistant under Dr. Eric G. Bing on a VR Surgery Simulator (VRSS). The surgery simulator is designed to reduce surgeon training costs through the combination of virtual reality simulation training with remote real-time supervision of surgical trainees. Kaitlyn helped develop cervical and breast cancer e-learning training courses for medical professionals in resource-limited settings. Kaitlyn says being Dr. Bing’s research assistant has been “impactful and valuable since his guidance taught me the value that my experiences and differences provide as we work to pinpoint, research, and innovate healthcare issues.”
