Oxford Medical Simulation (OMS) can be used both on your regular laptop or onsite in the building using the Virtual Reality (VR) headsets. Your instructor will ensure you have access to the appropriate simulation scenario and will explain what is expected of you.
Can my laptop really do this?
Yes, all laptops that meet the school requirements will run the OMS software. The requirements can be found here.
How do I start?
First, you have to make an account. At a designated time before the date of the simulation, you will receive an email at your Hopkins email asking you to confirm your email and set a password. DO NOT set your Hopkins password as your OMS password.
After setting your password and logging in, you will see a brief set of guidelines along with the link to download the OMS software.
To start using the software, go to this website and login with the credentials you previously created.
