We are now launching the BSGE Video Competition for Consultant, SAS doctor, Trainee, Nurse/GP Hysteroscopist and paramedic members of the society.
There will be 3 prizes of £300 each category including Doctors in Training, Nurse/Paramedics and Consultants/SAS/GP doctors. Winning the Video competition will enhance your CV and will provide the same CPD points as publishing a paper in a journal.
What kind of Videos will be considered?
It is not all about demonstrating exceptional surgical skills. If you think your fellow members will find your video useful and educational, then it is a good video to submit. For example, a well-edited video of a salpingectomy for ectopic pregnancy that demonstrates the standard technique, shows the anatomy well, uses appropriate graphics and is accompanied by a well-written summary is a video that may win a prize. Other examples include: demonstration of simple tips and tricks, complications and their management, challenging or rare cases, anatomical variations, as well as more advanced techniques. Videos using simulators may also be submitted.
The description of the video is very important and is considered carefully by the judges. A well-written educational summary (less than 250 words) is likely to increase your score.
The video must not be more than 10 minutes in length and should be in a commonly used format other than DVD (e.g. .mov, .mpg, .wmv etc.).
The video must be completely anonymised, both for the surgeon and the patient. It must only contain views of internal organs or a simulation exercise.
Submission of multiple videos by the same person is permitted. (separate application forms need to be filled in for each submitted video)
