Value of JOMI in a Pandemic

We have published a page outlining the value that JOMI brings to various users in context of a pandemic: https://jomi.com/Value-of-JOMI-in-a-Pandemic

In Summary: access to the OR is limited, elective surgical volume is down, and an opportunity to watch high-quality surgical videos is of significant value to medical students going through clerkships, residents, and anyone else who would generally benefit from in-person surgery.

OTO-Open: The Role of Video Atlases in Surgical Education

Surgical videos are a valuable resource in medical education – they help residents and students prepare for the operating room.

Dr. Scott Brown, the medical editor responsible for the creation of the Otolaryngology Section at JOMI, has published in OTO-Open an article “Development of a Surgical Video Atlas for Resident Education: 3-Year Experience“.  In this article, Dr. Brown discusses his journey, selection of cases, filming processes and challenges, and adoption of the content by residents and students.  Dr. Brown also discusses how surgical video atlases impact surgical training and the role they will play for ENT and other surgical residencies in the coming years.

SurgeonWorkforce Creates Map Highlighting Gaps in Surgical Care

Developing regions all over the world are medically underserved and experience tremendous gaps in the availability of surgical care, which most outside of the medical community remain unaware of. The region made up of East, Central, and Southern Africa is one such area. SurgeonWorkforce (http://www.cosecsa.org/global-surgery-map), an interactive map, aims to create awareness about this dearth by offering insight into surgical workforce distribution in the region.
