Relax with a Video at Multimedia Education Center

Take a break from the bustle of the Annual Meeting—and enjoy the best in orthopaedic video education—by relaxing at the Multimedia Education Center (MEC), located in Academy Hall, Moscone West, Level 1.

Open through Friday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., and on Saturday from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., the MEC includes a Featured Presentation Theatre that brings authors and participants together for engaging interactive discussions, and individual viewing stations enable you to focus on specific topics. Look for the Featured Presentation Theatre schedule each day in The Daily Edition AAOS Now; all sessions are free and open to all.

With 28 viewing stations, this year’s MEC gives attendees front-row seats for the very best in orthopaedic education. The 2012 award-winning instructional videos are featured at Stations 1–7, and can be see every day of the Annual Meeting.

Stations 8–28 include new video and multimedia programs, grouped by anatomic area. To increase your educational opportunities, the MEC is featuring two sets of programs: one for Tuesday and Wednesday (shown below), and a second set for Thursday through Saturday (included in Thursday’s Daily Edition AAOS Now). If you have the time, you can view different approaches to the same problem, learn how different surgeons perform the same procedure, or get an overview of several aspects of the same condition.

“We also have six ‘self-service’ stations,” said Kevin D. Plancher, MD, who chairs the Multimedia Education Center Subcommittee. “There, members can access any of the more than 180 videos available through the Orthopaedic Theater.”
