Telemedicine is a rapidly growing sector within medicine. It has the ability, through audio and video technology, to connect remote healthcare providers with patients or other providers without direct contact. Telementoring, a concept within telemedicine, is when an expert physician guides another physician at a different geographic location. Access to expertise using this technology-based approach has been shown to save lives, reduce hospital stay, and reduce cost in trauma and elective surgical settings. Recently, a new interactive technology has been introduced that takes a dual reality-based approach to surgical training.
