SimTec MD White Paper


The SimTec MD project solves several persistent challenges within traditional medical education. SimTec MD’s vision is to bring medical education into the 21st century by applying and combining technologies to create the Medical Metaverse in web 3.0. The challenge of transforming undergraduate students into doctors has been one of the more challenging job training issues. Traditional medical education has understandable challenges in training health professionals in the clinical setting on live patients. Virtual reality de-risks this training by providing learners with unlimited clinical access to virtual patients. Traditional medical education is a system that considers medical learners as consumers and has a high extraction rate in the form of student debt. A blockchain solution that provides a community token allows for medical learners to be rewarded as creators through their participation in building the network and engaging with medical institutions, educators, and companies. Lastly, advances in machine learning and artificial intelligence allow for the combination of these technologies into a virtual world designed to optimize the learning process in a way not previously possible with traditional education and Web 2.0 solutions. 

Introduction & Problem

Health professions are a core constituent of a society’s essential workers. This means that no nation can avoid the challenging task of transforming an undergraduate student into a competent doctor. Traditional institutions for medical education have wrestled admirably with these complex challenge for centuries but have been heald back technologies not yet available. 

One of the core challenges to medical education is balancing the trade-off between the benefits of real clinical experience for medical trainees and the risk of being borne by live patients as medical learners “practice” medicine on them. For years, medical research has shown that real-life experience, whether in the clinics or in simulation rooms, has been the most effective form of training (ref). However, real clinical experience is associated with obvious risk and physical simulation centers are disastrous to scale (ref). Additionally, even if medical students were given unlimited access and scope of practice in clinical settings, the clinics themselves are not designed for educational purposes but rather for patient care.Consider that in a real-world clinical setting there is no way of ensuring the patient in front of the student matches the ability and needs of the learner. These inherent challenges have resulted in accepted inadequacies in the process of medical education because obvious solutions were not yet available. 

One resultant defect in the process of medical training is an extended amount of time spent in a lecture based learning. Typically the first two years of medical school are spent in lectures before medical learners are able to have meaningful clinical experience. The reasons for this division are obvious; no one want the first year medical student taking over their care. An unintended effect of this division of labor is that medical learners are exposed to a tremendous amount of theoretical content that is divorced from context that comes from clinical experience. This might be why the the literature on learning shows that lectures in medical school may actually impede learning (ref). This leacture-heavy format has the unintended effect of dividing medical training into a learning phase (first two years) and a doing phase (second two years), rather than a lifelong learning process that is essential for an ever-changing field such as medicine. 

The Web 2.0 community over the past 5 years has developed a series of inspiring innovations in an attempt to bring medical education into the digital age. Some of these companies’ positive impacts have tried to assist this process by removing locational barriers to great medical information. Several companies have led this movement by providing effective and efficient online lecture-based content. Others have digitized medical textbooks into online pdfs. 

The downside of some Web 2.0 solutions often relates to their effectiveness in replacing traditional lecture-based medical content. These paid online tools were so effective that medical students in mass stopped attending lectures, even when taught by Nobel prize winners (ref). This digitized information means that medical students went into online isolation years before the COVID-19 pandemic because most of these tools are isolating. This is a real pain point for the medical industry as a whole that has always depended on the professional collegiality that has existed between the practicing doctors and the rising generation of medical students. Additionally, it is difficult to say how but this isolation may also exacerbate the already shockingly high rates of mental health challenges within the medical trainee population (ref).

Both traditional medical training and Web 2.0 medical training have had an unavoidably high take rate from medical students. Traditional medical training involves high tuition costs and minimal clinical access as medical schools try to fit an increasing number of students into a limited supply of clinical environments. Medical students exit training with on average $400,000 in student debt (ref). Additionally, the web 2.0 online training solution has been able to improve the educational lecture-based content but the bill has been placed on the medical students as tools that need to be purchase these, in addition to their tuition. While the medical community at large appreciated the advancements made by these institutions to increase the effectiveness of teaching, the structure of web 2.0 has not allowed medical students who were early in the community to benefit from supporting, creating, and influencing the development of these companies and projects. 

While every community has a collective interest in the training of our next generation of health professionals, there are several groups that have emerged as having a particularly close connection. These include medical learners at all stages and additionally medical educators and influencers, medical institutions, and interested companies involved in innovation. Each of these core communities exchanges value between one another as they fulfill their respective roles in medical training. To demonstrate a sample of the exchange of value, in the USA alone there are over 200 undergraduate pre-medical programs, resulting in hundreds of thousands of students enrolling in these courses, purchasing test preparation kits, writing the medical college admissions test (MCAT), and working with application agencies, all in an effort to matriculate in a medical school. Each of these communities represents billion-dollar markets interacting with one another as they contribute to the challenge of medical education. 

This brief introduction to medical education and its associated challenges is not meant as a criticism of the current institution or individuals in this space. It is our belief that some of these issues were insurmountable, at least before recent technological developments in the Web 3.0 space. 


SimTec MDs’ primary goal is to transition medical education into the 21st century. Traditional medical education has served students and communities well, however, it is utilizing an outdated operating system. New technologies such as virtual reality (VR) and artificial intelligence (AI) paired with web3 token economics, provide an incredible opportunity for positive disruption in medical education. It is our belief that the synergy of these general-purpose technologies in one tool will signal the transition of traditional medical education into the 21st century in what we call the Medical Metaverse. 


Diagram 1: This Venn diagram shows the technologies combined to add value to SimTec MD’s Medical Metaverse. 


Moving medical education from the traditional model to the Medical Metaverse 

Traditional Medical Education and Web 2.0Web3 in the Medical Metaverse 
Early clinical access and learning is limitedClinical experience begins in virtual clinics on day one 
Medical Learners are considered cumstomers for exploitation resulting in extreme levels of student debtMedical students are considered creators and contributors and are rewarded for engagement 
Medical institutions are limited to the teaching capabilities of local talentMedical institutions have access to the world best medical educators 
Clinics and hospital environments are designed for patient careVirtual environments present learners with patients tailored to the learners personal needs 
Medical training credentials are largely determined by a single institution and are considered privateMedical training and certification is considered public data and can be validated throughout the entire process of education 
Web 2.0 online learning material lack the collegiality nature traditional medical education A medical metaverse allows professionals to mentor and give back to the younger generation and contribute to a sense of collegiality. 
Medical educators and influncers forced to advertise inorder monetize their teaching skillsEducators can be financially rewarded for their skills as a medical educator in an of themselves 


Value proposition

SimTec MD’s Medical Metaverse combines the utility of several general-purpose technologies. that have the potential to add value to traditional medical education. Therefore, the tables below describe certain values added by each of the following technology categories: Virtual Reality, Tokens, NFTs, Blockchain. These value additions are separated into tables to demonstrate how each group benefits.  


Table 1: Medical Learners 

Traditional Model or Web 2.0 (pain point)Technology Value Proposition of New Technology
Limited Clinical AccessVirtual Reality Unlimited access to virtual patients 
Competence is determined by one medical institution Non-TransferableNFT Badges Medical competence of learners is able to be transparently validated. 
Excessive abstract learning that is divorced from clinical experience. Virtual Reality Contextual learning that results from feedback learning systems 
Separated learning tools between clinical environments, texts books, online resources, and educators. Virtual Reality All these learning tools can be combined in a VR headset. 
High financial extraction from medical student with no system in place to value a medical student contribution to the educational experience $STMD Tokens Medical learners that participate early and often are considered creators that are able to be financially rewarded while learning medicine 
Serious content manner potentially contributing to poor mental health outcomes from medical learnersVirtual Reality Ability to gamify portions of medical education 
Clinical environments may or may not reflect the a learners need and skill level AI/Algorithm Virtual clinics integrate the latest learning theory so that a learners clinic present them with the right virtual patient at the right time to optimize their learning and development 
Access to the world’s best medical educators is limited by geographical location and association with students medical institution Virtual Reality Allow medical learners and educators from around the world to connect in a meaningful clinical environment 
Learners are required to manually track their clinical skillsAI/Algorithm Clinical scores are automatically tracked over time to optimize the learning process
International medical learners have no access to other countries clinical training during the process of switching countries Virtual Reality Medical Learners can train and be certified in a countries regionalized content prior arriving in the country or before competence exams 
General community trust that medical learners are certified to practice a certain scope of medicine Non-TransferableNFT Badges Medical learners certification can be validate on a blockchain to protect self and patient 
Limited amounts of personalization in the professional training setting Functional NFT assets Accumulation of scare collectable digital content that can be used for  personalization and expression or be transferred for value. 


Table 2: Medical Educators 

Traditional Model or Web 2.0 (pain point)Technology Value Proposition of New Technology
Medical Educators were paid by extracting from the medical learners $STMD TokensMedical Educators are paid for adding value to the network
Medical educators had little ability to reward and interact with followers $STMD Tokens Tokens allow Educators to financially reward their followers and build loyalty 
Medical educators were conflicted into tradvertising in order to be rewarded for their skills in medical eduction $STMD Tokens Educator who find advertising against their professional code can now be financially rewarded for their skills in teaching with no need to advertise products
Web 2.0 technologies generally had a destructive effect on professional collegiality and professional mentoring relationships within the medical community. Additionally, practicing doctors not associated with medical institutions have little opportunity to connect and contribute to the next generation of medical Learners. Virtual Reality Virtual reality allows students to interact with and learn directly from professional role models from any location in the world. Additionally, any doctor has the ability to contribute to medical education and the rising generation. 
Content created by medical educators was often extracted by the medical institutions and a free model of distribution made it difficult to differentiate good teaching material from poorNFTMedical educators are considered independent creators and owners of medical content they organize for teaching and the NFT system allows for the Learners to understand what content has the highest yield to other users. 
Medical educators had no mechanisms in place to validate if their teaching was in reality improving the understanding of their students Non-Transferable NFT Badges The blockchain allows Medical Educators to track the effectiveness of their teaching and provide positive reinforcement or corrective mechanisms. This effect has the potential to improve both individual and collective medical education. 
Medical Educators had little access to technology to supplement their teaching capacity. Virtual Reality Medical Educators provide the Medical Metaverse with their medical expertise and SimTec MD provides them with development teams to build exclusive content. 


Table 3: Medical institutions 

Traditional Model or Web 2.0 (pain point)Technology Value Proposition of New Technology
Medical Institutions may have a large barrier to developing virtual reality content themselves. .Virtual Reality Medical institutions provide the Medical Metaverse with their medical expertise and SimTec MD provides them with development teams to build their content.
Inability to scale real clinical environments or traditional simulation rooms. Virtual Reality Medical institutions can now provide move students with a scalable and effective clinical environment
Medical institution’s admissions teams were dependent on surrogate markers (MCAT, GPA, interviews) to determine the capabilities of undergraduate medical learners.  Non-Transferable NFT Badges Undergraduate learners with medical aspiration can have public verification of medical competence and certification prior to applying to medical schools. 
Medical institutions have traditionally struggled observing competence in medical students. Virtual Reality and Blockchain Both these features allow for observable and verifiable competence for medical learners. 


Table 4: Medical & Non-Medical Companies (Partnerships)

Traditional Model or Web 2.0 (pain point)Technology Value Proposition of New Technology
Lack of transparency in connecting advertising between companies, educators, and institutions $STMD Tokens Publicly verifiable ledger to validate interactions 
Difficulty with engaging health professionals with research and development products and concepts $STMDTokens Health professionals can interact and provide feedback in the research and development process in exchange for tokens 
Companies spend large money for product development and user feedback Virtual Reality Research and development teams can build relatively function minimal variable product in virtual reality to showcase features and receive feedback 
Changes advertising product to a distracted generation that is characterized by split-screen impressions. Virtual Reality and Blockchain Allows for not only impressions but user engagement with products that can be tranked and verified on the blockchain 



Our core assumptions 

  1. That medical training in virtual reality can effectively substitute traditional medical education and web 2.0 solutions. 
  2. The SimTec MD can accumulate a community of medical educators and learners  on its platform in order to attract other interested communities to share value with each other. 
  3. That the medical community is ready for blockchain technologies including tokens and NFTs. 
  4. That personal virtual reality headsets are ubiquitous enough to scale in this market 
  5. That virtual reality technology has advanced far enough to be effective enough for medical education. 
  6. That there is a use-case for the medical community to use a token to exchange value. 


  • Our initial target markets in Phase I of our development timeline are medical learners and medical influencers. These these groups include demographics that are currently the highest adopters of web3 and virtual reality technologies. Medical institutions are the most likely of our four main communities to be reluctant to adopt a token-based system. This is why medical institutions are considered a part of phase II of our development timeline. It has been demonstrated with Web 2.0 technologies within medicine that if there is a large enough user base that a network effect allows the new technology to become and industry standard in reluctant organizations. 


Utility Token Summary 

  • Medical students gain tokens as they enter the ecosystem and use these to learn and exchange value with the community. 
  • Educators are rewarded in token for adding the medical knowledge and colegiality to the medical metaverse.  
  • Medical Institutions have the ability to scale their clinical training in an effective manner while token access to VR development and technologies is difficult to be managed within the university setting. 
  • Companies are enabled to exchange meaningful engagement with there product for token in the esteemed population of medical students and future doctors.
