Surgery 101 wishes all of our listeners a happy holiday season and a peaceful and prosperous 2014.
It may have seemed a little quiet here for the last few weeks, but we have been working very hard in the background to get ready for Phase 2 of Surgery 101, coming in January 2014!
There's a special announcement coming very soon, we think you're going to like what we have lined up for next year!

At this week's pre-Christmas Surgical Education Rounds, Dr Bin Zheng discussed "Eye movements in surgery: A literature review" by Hermens et al (2013). We had a great discussion about this very new field of research, considering:
- is it possible to train a surgeon how to look better?
- is 'proper eye movement' a basic, intermediate or advanced skill?
- what are the important differences between 'watching' and 'doing'?
- is this only applicable to screen-based surgery, or can it be applied to open surgery?
