December 1998 AAOS Report

Join online discussion group on virtual reality

New to the Academy's web site is a discussion group entitled "Virtual Reality for Orthopaedic Surgeons." "The Academy's Council on Education formed a task force on virtual reality, and at one of our meetings we felt there was a good opportunity to get member input on this topic by having a discussion group on the home page," said Jay D. Mabrey, MD, task force chairman and council member. "Currently, the task force is looking at several ways to create an arthroscopy stimulator. And, the Committee on Electronic Media Education is looking for ways to teach musculoskeletal anatomy. So, we are asking members to go to the discussion group and offer their opinions on what should be the Academy's role in virtual reality in orthopaedics." The discussion group can be found on the Academy's web site at in the "Discussion Groups" section.
