“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).”
