WISEMD

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 modules address over 20 topics typically taught during the surgical clerkship such as appendicitis, biliary tract disease, breast cancer, thyroid disease, and hernia. Content has been reviewed by multiple academic surgeons. Each is narrated by an expert in the field. Professionalism and communication are emphasized on sections related to taking the history, performing the physical exam, and preparing the patient for surgery. Most of the modules have self-assessment questions. Modules are beautifully illustrated with video and animation. Reports are available for clerkship directors regarding usage of the modules by individual students. To date, over 100 medical and osteopathic schools use WISE-MD as part of their clerkship curriculum.
