The book 'To Err is Human, To Teach VR. Virtual Reality and Artificial Intelligence in Medical Education' (Maxim Gorshkov – Stuttgart: EuroMedSim, 2024. – 272 p.) was published. The book discusses the use of virtual patients, simulators, trainers, and artificial intelligence (AI)-based systems in medical education. It covers issues such as terminology, design and classification of virtual simulators, differences in training and assessment in the digital environment, benefits and potential threats of the training of health care givers using virtual technologies and artificial intelligence. This study is addressed to educators using digital simulation technologies, developers and manufacturers of virtual didactic equipment, and clinicians considering the possibility of integrating VR and AI technologies into the training of healthcare providers.

The website of the Museum of Medicine EuroMedSim, the European Institute of Simulation in Medicine has begun its work. The site presents medical instruments from the museum’s collection, unique exhibits from the library of rare medical publications, and art objects related to medicine. The basis of the collection are ancient surgical instruments from the 18th to 20th centuries. High-quality original photographs and video materials perfectly complement the product descriptions. Cross-references to the pages of prominent physicians and manufacturing companies related to instruments and books help make online travel through the sections of the museum even more exciting.
