Google Hangouts in Healthcare CAN be a Truly Global Experience

We just had a great hangout. We organized a Google Hangout with the Neurosurgical community, around the topic of “Neck Pain: Undetected Metastatic Adenocarcioma”, and it was a very educational, global experience. Global because we had medical minds, on our desktop and iPhone screens, from Brazil (3), Ecuador, Spain, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Florida, and Japan. All on the computer screen. At home. Talking Neurosurgery.
Carlos Lluminguano MD, a Spanish Neurosurgeon from Spain, currently in Ecuador teaching Neurosurgical residents, gave a quality presentation, and the questions and answers were educational. Watch the session below, and witness what we feel is the digital evolution of Medical education.
