Doctors are turning to YouTube to learn how to do surgical procedures

quote [ Tens of thousands of videos on YouTube show surgeries ranging from face-lifts to knee replacements. But the content isn't vetted or curated, and some doctors say it should be. ]

what could go wrong?

Long gone are the days of memorizing everything from the latest medical textbooks containing already outdated information even before they were printed. While memorization is still key and important for doctors, it's not the only thing they need anymore.

There are tons of medical journals and research published every year and the best doctors now are the ones who can find and search the most up-to-date information faster than everyone.

If only there was some middle ground between reading horribly outdated textbooks and watching YouTube.

I can't wait to drop this on my practicum students next time someone asks if they can use listening to a podcast in their car for clinical hours.

There are really detailed videos. In theory, I could remove your appendix. You shouldn't bet your life on it though... unless you have no other choice.
