In the last six years Virtual Reality (VR) and Virtual Environment (VE) became more technologically advanced and accessible being cheaper. In Healthcare, VR is mainly used for students training, professionals training (simulators); rehabilitation/therapy; treatment/diagnosis and pain management. In this review we analyzed 2,252 articles published between 2012 and 2019 on PubMed and we organized them in sections: simulation for students; simulation for residents/novice; advanced simulation for professionals; application in the medical/dental/nursing field (soft skills); review and meta-analysis on simulations or VR and planning of presurgical/surgical or diagnostic cases. We have found that the greater use of VR is about: students/residents training and professionals skills improvement. A small part of VR is used to teach soft skills. This analysis demonstrates the versatility of these instruments.
