The Journal of Medical Insight (JoMI, www.jomi.com) announced a partnership with Research4Life that will make the journal’s video articles accessible in over 100 developing countries. Research4Life will provide access to the journal through HINARI, the Access to Research in Health Programme. This partnership will provide 5,700 eligible institutions with an educational resource critical for medical students, residents and attending physicians alike.
The Journal of Medical Insight seeks to mitigate the global discrepancy in patient outcomes between low-volume and high-volume hospitals and surgeons. On a population level, low-volume surgeons’ performance is inferior to that of high-volume surgeons.

The flipped-classroom model is making waves in medical school education. In the past two years, the medical schools of Stanford, Duke, UCSF, University of Washington and University of Michigan have been working together to develop a revolutionary flipped classroom course in immunology and microbiology.

The model requires students to watch video lectures in preparation for class so that class time can be used for personal interactions with teachers and other students. While such an arrangement may seem feasible for non-surgical higher medical education, as in the cases of immunology and microbiology, we might ask if, why, and how the flipped-classroom model is appropriate for surgical education.
