report

Today, many resources for surgical videos are accessible online, each with its own purpose and intended audience. The goal of this study is to ensure that the modern surgical student and teacher are aware of 1) which resources are available, 2) their intended purposes, and 3) their value as an educational tool.

Press Release: JoMI Joins Research4Life – Brings Surgical Videos to Over 100 Countries

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. This trend may be exacerbated in developing countries where The World Health Organization and the Harvard School of Public Health discovered…

Surgical Video and JoMI in the World of Flipped-Classroom Education

BlogPicFinal1The 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. Rather than learning from textbooks and lectures, students are to study these topics outside of class through specially designed video case studies. In the classroom, students will practice clinical decision-making as a team, even during the first two years of medical school.

A flipped classroom is so called because it inverts the traditional classroom structure of in-class lectures and out-of-class problem solving. 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.
