We Believe that Virtual Reality is the way of the future!
Here at U.P.E.M.S. We utilize a variety of different technologies.. from Holographics to Virtual Reality, from Virtual Reality to Agumented Reality, and even Mixed Reality!
Our Director has a dream and a vision to be able to change the way we teach EMS. He noticed that students were struggling understanding certain concepts. He wants to bridge that gap and create a way for EMS and first responders to train to save lives in a more realistic way never before experienced! He wants to see our Nation's Heroes helped and wants to see our Citizens healed more effectively.
Statement from the Director:
"I, as Director, firmly believe that the answer is NOT in MORE of the same education...We need DIFFERENT education. We need to train our Nation's Home-Front Heroes and First Responders in a unique way that trains them for what they will REALLY see and experience out on the streets. I will train them in critical thinking, common sense, compassionate love for people, and selfless service for their neighbor.
After over a year of research and creation, I created the way of the future for our students to learn. I figured out the way to take YOU, my students, and place them inside of the human heart, and inside of the body to show you how the organs truly work. I want you to understand the organs fully in ways you have never before been able to understand. My passion is for you to fully understand exactly what is happening inside your patient in real time so you can best treat them according to what they really need! We, at UPEMS, utilize many Low-Tech and High Tech ways including everything from a low-tech walkable heart on the floor, to high-tech virtual reality and everything in between. We create our own apps and our own footage to teach you how to fully grasp the concepts taught in the books!
I will leave you with this:
I won't stop until we are saving lives together. My passion is to connect the gap between what you read in the textbook, and what you are doing with your hands when you handle your patients. My passion is for my community. My passion is for my State. My Passion is for my Nation. I want to serve and see other's lives be saved every day. I want to be a part of that. I hope that you do as well, and I look forward to training you to do so. I will commit to give you, my students, my best and nothing less. Thank you for your consideration." -Andrew N.
We took Virtual Reality One step above and farther than we ever imagined! We didn't settle for just using Virtual Reality, We wanted to project what we were seeing in our headsets out to the rest of the class to see! So we figured out just how to do that with our Mixed Reality Portal! We can throw the images of real life holograms and holographics of the human body through our portal for the classroom to see! Imagine coming into class and learning on a 3d anatomical holohuman!? Imagine Interacting with a Holohuman and learning how the heart actually works, looks, and and beats in real time! Imagine Taking your Anatomy and Physiology test or quiz on a holohuman instead of on paper!? yep...here at Utah's Paramedic and EMS Academy, you can!
