Surgical Education
Surgical Education
With the increasing popularity of artificial intelligence, its uses are quickly becoming not only a part of everyday life, but also training in surgery. Those of us without much understanding of the technology might be intimidated by this nebulous topic, or worry that we won’t be able to comprehend the advancements to come to the field. Luckily, we’re joined by a leading expert in the use of AI in surgery, Dr. Dan Hashimoto. He breaks down some examples of how AI is being used in surgical education, the role surgeons should play in these advancements, and some tips for how we can critically appraise work in the field of AI if we don’t understand the technology ourselves. Join hosts Nicole Brooks, MD, Judith French, PhD and Jeremy Lipman, MD, MHPE for this exciting conversation.
