Background : In pandemic times where the "lockdown strategy" has been adopted, the use of innovations using technological resources such as the creation of instruments that can replace traditional teaching-learning methods in the training of health professionals is essential. The aim of this study was to develop and evaluate the usability of a realistic interactive simulation computer system using three-dimensional imaging technology and virtual reality with free-access computational tools

An experimental phase was carried out to assess usability, through a questionnaire based on the System Usability Scale. The study was approved by the Research Ethics Committee of the institution and all patients signed the Informed Consent Form. Results : a total of 39 undergraduate medical students from the 6th semester of a private university center of northeast do Brazil voluntarily participated in the evaluation of the OSCE 3D. The usability evaluation presented a mean score of 75.4 with a margin of error of 3.2, considered a good usability according to the literature. Conclusions : this work allowed the development of a low-cost prototype, using a three-dimension realistic simulation system for OSCE assessment stations. This product, even in the prototype phase, showed good usability.
