What is more notable is that the event took place at the metaverse hall planned, designed, and built by students from Medical Innovation and Women Entrepreneurs II, an additional free elective clerkship course. While being educated on metaverse, students planned and designed many metaverse spaces that meet students' actual needs, such as study rooms for preparing for the Korea Medical Licensing Examination, open study rooms, student club rooms, meeting rooms for group projects, and many more.
