The objective of this special issue under the title “Technological advances and teaching innovation applied to health science education” is to improve health science education, to encourage the information exchange and dissemination regarding different training aspects in medical science. Technological procedures in teaching entail an important adequacy and teaching content analysis to transmit and be acquired by students, as well as their careful presentation so that the message and knowledge reach the student more effectively. Due to this, the design of technological applications is very important so that is becomes attractive to the user, and the time spent in the learning process helps optimize it and facilitate its knowledge. The authors will introduce, to teachers and researchers, current technological application tools and their possibilities in education; providing complementary training elements that help improve the teaching and learning process in health sciences. How these application of computer technologies in education broadens the action and intercommunication possibilities between teachers and students, allowing access to new means of exploration and representation, together with new ways to access knowledge through diverse types of tools: powerful body structure visualization, multimedia imagery, computer simulations, stereoscopic visualization, virtual and augmented reality techniques, computer platforms for resource and document storage and mobile devices will be further discussed.
