The following videos explain how and why surgeries are done while showing you what the surgeon sees in real time. Medical student mentors, watching these videos will help you prepare for your surgery clerkship. You may incorporate these videos into lessons for HCC high school students about anatomy or as preparation for a field trip to a surgical simulation center or preparation for a surgical robotics experience from Intuitive. Or you can have a series of lessons about surgery that incorporate these videos. Please alert students that they are going to be seeing a surgeon’s view which includes organs inside the body. We recommend that you show these videos to students, pausing every few minutes to answer questions and check for understanding.
