Being a spine surgeon requires the dedication, training, and focus of a professional athlete with significantly more at stake – patients’ lives. Spine surgery can be complex, and patient and surgeon training is a continuous learning process. Even experienced spine surgeons are constantly measuring, monitoring, and analyzing the results of each case and looking for ways to improve how they operate and educate.
Blended learning began to trend even before the COVID-19 pandemic. Virtual learning tools enhanced in-person instruction by reinforcing concepts learned through a didactic teaching format. However, being a good surgeon requires learning by doing and watching experienced surgeons plan and troubleshoot real-world cases intra-operatively.
