Testimonial: Abbas Naqvi, 4th year medical student

Abbas Naqvi“I’m a current 4th year medical student going into Orthopaedic Surgery. In preparation for residency, I began collecting various resources that I thought may aid my surgical education when I came across the Journal of Medical Insight. JoMI is, by far, one of the most amazing resources I’ve come across and I regret not discovering it earlier in my medical education. High definition video, consistent quality, a structured approach focused on teaching, and procedural outlines all make the platform extremely conducive to those in surgical training as well as medical students alike.”

Testimonial: Medical Illustrator

sjohnston_headshot“I am a medical illustrator at the Stanford School of Medicine, Department of Surgery, Division of Clinical Anatomy. I just learned about JoMI and have been very impressed by it so far. It has a nice interface, and I like how the videos are broken up into sections that can be jumped to easily. It would be a fantastic resource for surgical illustration.”
