As an aspiring orthopedic surgeon; my intention in this post is to share a bit about my experiences as a medical student and to articulate the role that JoMI plays in my advancement.

“If you’re a medical student like me, choosing a specialty is a hard thing to do.

Some were low quality animations, and others weren’t able to give me the information I was looking for as a medical student. This problem illustrates that need for a service like JoMI, where I can reliably find high quality and high yield videos and information about many different surgeries all in one place (case in point: cervical laminoplasty with Dr. Louis Jenis).”
