Multimedia Lab

The department has an award-winning, state-of-the-art multimedia laboratory utilizing multiple digital resources and tools.  The media lab is equipped with a range of recording devices enabling UHD4K video and pro-level audio recording capabilities.  Access to industry standard, high-tech software also provides residents the tools to create and produce a diverse range of innovative multimedia projects such as interactive newsletters, video content for instruction, demonstration and presentation used in major national and international conferences. Importantly, Boston Medical Center and Boston University extend managerial support to the endeavors and projects of the multimedia lab enabling residents to explore, create and publish projects of interest.

The media lab employs a radio-frequency-controlled audience-response system (Option Technologies Interactive) to anonymously poll participants during didactic sessions. The results are displayed immediately on a whiteboard using graph charts. The combination of computer-based presentations, audience-response system and video-recording capabilities creates a stimulating and engaging milieu both for teachers and students.

Attendings and faculty are recognized leaders in their field providing opportunities for residents to publish regularly in journals such as the New England Journal of Medicine, and text books such as Clinical Anesthesia Fundamentals.
