The Good Doctor & Virtual Reality


Are you watching The Good Doctor right now? A young autistic doctor who is a phenomenon is one of a group of doctors who work in a very futuristic hospital. In episode 9, a young patient with heart failure is being operated on. Before performing the procedure, they carried out the entire process digitally and conducted iterations to ascertain whether the procedure was successful. Now, if I ever needed surgery, that is how I would prefer to have it done. It’s amazing how many revisions they made to the simulated heart before deciding the procedure was successful.


In this episode, virtual reality, science, medicine, and surgery were all employed together. University course connections are now a reality, and that is how we should all be learning. We can’t just declare we’re studying medicine; we also need to learn how to use or research other aspects of the work that will make it simpler and safer. Most of the finest colleges in the world have employed students from many disciplines to participate in initiatives to further the common good. In the past, all disciplines were taught in isolation from one another, which worked but not very well.


You could therefore make better use of your academic time and contribute to the scientific field by learning how to combine your major with other majors (for example, criminology and media, speech therapy and teaching, medicine, business, etc.) when you attend university. There is nothing wrong with making music, basketball, or book reading as optional courses, but you can do these things with one of the clubs or societies and you are not required to enroll in them as a minor. Since there are more than 3000 majors in the world, I am only giving you a few examples here.
