Join Multimedia's Operation "Share the Knowledge"
The department of electronic media invites all member surgeons who can "Share the Knowledge," to send videos of their surgical procedures for inclusion in the Orthopaedic Surgeons Video Library. The video might be included in a multimedia product for the 2006 Annual Meeting that will teach hundreds of Academy peers how to perform surgical procedures correctly. The Academy receives a wide range of educational material from members, seeking to share orthopaedic knowledge with other AAOS fellows.
Members who have the equipment, time and ability also contribute video in various forms, including videotape, CD-ROM, DVD video and even Web sites that contain educational material. Because orthopaedists tend to be visual learners, a good way for them to learn the steps of a surgical procedure is to view a well-made, visually accurate video of the procedure.
The Academy welcomes high quality, digitally formatted video from its members.
From these products, the Academy has recently produced a number of excellent surgical procedure-based programs.
Please e-mail MME@aaos.org for details on how you can Operate, Shoot, Contribute—and be featured at the 2006 Annual Meeting.
