The Web Initiative for Surgical Education of Medical Doctors (WISE-MD) is a series of web-based modules created to enhance the surgical education of medical students as well as other health care professionals by providing high quality content on common surgical conditions.
The content draws on the experience of the Editorial Board and Board of Directors, a team of industry experts from North America's leading medical institutions.
Access to WISE-MD in remote hospitals or even at home assures the same quality of content regardless of the students’ assignment.
Eliminates the conflict of “clinical experience vs. lecture” and allows the student to prepare the evening before participating in surgery.
3D animations are shown as a split-screen to the surgery being performed and illustrate the procedure in detail.
Provides uniform content to students at other sites.
Allows time for discussion rather than didactic lectures.
