Extended reality (XR) has exponentially developed over the past decades to incorporate technology whereby users can visualise, explore, and interact with 3-dimensional-generated computer environments, and superimpose virtual reality (VR) onto real-world environments, thus displaying information and data on various levels of the reality-virtuality continuum. In the context of medicine, VR tools allow for anatomical assessment and diagnosis, surgical training through lifelike procedural simulations, planning of surgeries and biopsies, intraprocedural guidance, and medical education. The following chapter aims to provide an overview of the currently available evidence and perspectives on the application of XR within medical education. It will focus on undergraduate and postgraduate teaching, medical education within Low-Middle Income Countries, key practical steps in implementing a successful XR programme, and the limitations and future of extended reality within medical education.
