Abstract

Surgery 101 is a series of podcasts intended to serve as brief introductions or reviews of surgical topics for medical students. We aim to cover a single topic in 15-20 minutes so that learners can quickly grasp the basic concepts relating to a common surgical problem. Learning objectives are provided for each episode; episodes are divided into chapters and conclude with several key points to summarize the topic.
Surgery 101 has been produced since October 2008; it was created by Dr. Parveen Boora and Dr. Jonathan White, and is currently produced by the Undergrad Surgery Mobile Podcasting Studio Team which is: Jonathan White, Nishan Sharma, Jenni Marshall, Katrina Pederson, Shannon Erichsen and Tracy Smereka, with the assistance of the members of the Department of Surgery at the University of Alberta. The Surgery 101 podcasts can be downloaded for free from the iTunes Music Store, from surgery101.org, from MedEdPORTAL and from the Canadian Healthcare Education Commons. As of February 2012, our episodes have been downloaded more than 420,000 times. To date, 80 episodes have been released, and new episodes are added every Friday. Episodes 71-80 are included in this resource. Our experience with the Surgery 101 podcasts has been published in Medical Teacher.
