“If you’re a medical student like me, choosing a specialty is a hard thing to do. This is especially true for surgical specialties where it’s hard to quickly see what different surgeries are like without spending at least a 2-week block shadowing. So I went to Google to search for a video of a surgery I was interested in: cervical laminoplasty. The problem is that the results were terrible. 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).”

Obviously, not all students share my habits, but anecdotal evidence (of my peers in medical programs across North America) suggests that a significant proportion of students (if given the option) do not attend lectures in person. Most students read the instructor’s slides (to become familiar with the learning objectives, again for examination purposes), and listen to audio or video recordings of the lectures (often at 2x normal playback speed) in the weeks leading up to an exam.
