From the memorization of facts, ideas, and histories in medical school, students move on in residency and beyond to practice the Art of Surgery. As opposed to the simple memorization of scientific facts, the physical intervention to improve or to heal the human body is truly an art. Every moment of the surgical process is layered and nuanced; from the mental preparation of determining the safest procedure and the best courses of action to the special technical maneuvers that master surgeons apply, the surgical procedure is learned not through the simple and quickly-outdated representations in a textbook, but in real-life practice. Watching a master surgeon is akin to watching the conductor of an orchestra. The flow of the operation, the patterns created, and the economy of motion make surgery appear effortless, whereas in reality this effortlessness requires years or decades of practiced work and learning. Many of the intricate and unique approaches that a master surgeon employs—perceivable but indescribable—may not fit neatly into traditional training texts. With ever-evolving trainee work hour restrictions and requirements, the ability to gain full knowledge as in years past from double or triple scrubbing advanced cases is vanishing as trainees step away from their operating tables. In addition, the fast pace of emerging best practices and a constant barrage of new technologies has even further diminished the applicability of learned text. It is therefore time to change how we deliver medical knowledge, research results and surgical instruction to the next generation. Information and communication technology is rapidly expanding; we can harness this technology as a tool to disseminate the art of the master surgeon to the next generation. We can mitigate the decrease in operating room time and the decrease in time with the master surgeon via an interactive process in which the learners can view operations—with their nuances, their beauty and, yes, their mistakes—via this new platform: Art of Surgery. As part of the initiative, I need medical student who is interesting in medical illustration, film making, editing and 3 D animation to participate the long-term projects which covers the whole spectrum of medicine: from patient education material, medical terminology, anatomy explanation to complex surgery.

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
