In the last two to three years, smart glasses introduced into surgical specialties have shown great potential for enhancing patient care and training processes. Dr. Selene Parekh, Professor of Orthopedic Surgery, has been at the forefront of applying technology to healthcare, especially using smart glasses to aid training of fellow surgeons from his native country of India. Dr. Parekh has used multiple commercially available devices, such as Google Glass and Pivothead SMART, to record and live broadcast his operations for synchronous telementoring. Dr. Parekh is also working on applications of computer vision that would aid materials management in operating theaters around the world. He will describe his work and then lead a conversation and discussion about how this kind of technology can benefit teaching and learning and mentoring. If you’re interested in new and creative ways to share skills and expertise whether at the operating table or in a chemistry lab or showing a particular piano technique, you will find this event useful.
