Why Educators love Body Interact

I find Body Interact to be an excellent tool to improve critical thinking and decision-making skills.
Hearing the monitors and the sound of respiratory difficulty makes us feel the real pressure.

Maria Ferreira5th-year Medical Student from Faculty of Medicine of University of Porto

Our students love Body Interact.
When they see what they can do and realize they are actually learning, they get very curious.

Dr Edgar Herrera, MDPresident of the Mexican Society of Simulation and Professor at Anahuac University

It's exciting to watch students learn and become emotionally attached to the clinical cases. It provides practical knowledge to the learner rather than having the educator dictate the outcome.

Matthew W. Martinez, MD, FACCAssociate Chef, Education, Division of Cardiolofy at Lehigh Valley Health Network
