Dr. Vito Forte

Location: Toronto, ON

Award: Innovation Award

Category: Health Professionals' Education

Year: 2015

Innovation:

The OtoSim™ system consists of a silicone ear made to scale with an integrated computer display of images of the ear canal and eardrum exhibiting a full range of medical conditions. Students use it to mimic the experience of looking into an ear with an otoscope. OtoSim training units can be networked in sets, allowing instructors to share images with a group of students, and electronically point to areas within images to confirm that students are accurately seeing different pathologies or anatomical landmarks. OtoSim-based training can also be done remotely through the Internet.
