Academic surgery, grounded in innovative teaching and technology, is positioned to adopt video technology in the operating room for surgical education. In the last decade, digital video technology has become cheaper, commercially available, and aligned with the medicolegal climate that drives a steep learning curve. Reduced resident work hours and ever-widening requirements for competency in areas of patient safety, billing, and systems-based practice reduce time in the operating room. In short, safe and efficient training is feasible and critical.
