Winning the Video competition will enhance your CV and will provide the same CPD points as publishing a paper in a journal.
To enter the competition you need to complete the following by midnight 26th April 2019.
- Upload your video (s), following instructions below
- Complete and submit online application form.
- Winner’s names and their videos will be published on the BSGE website. The length of time videos will remain on the website may vary. Some of the unsuccessful videos may also be published on the video library at the editor’s discretion.
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, demonstrating a new surgical euipement 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 be completely anonymised, both for the surgeon and the patient. It must only contain views of internal organs or a simulation exercise.
