Video Mentorship Series


The ASCRS video mentorship series aims to build a community of learners who regularly engage in intraoperative video-based coaching sessions using a learner-contributory moderated format with the goal of sharing operative techniques and improving procedural confidence. 
  2022 Curriculum and Schedule
A curriculum has been established that focuses on one step of one procedure (for example splenic flexure takedown).  The steps identified in the curriculum will each be the topic of a webinar in the series. During the webinar, videos will be presented anonymously while moderators provide commentary and respond to questions submitted by attendees in real time.

Call for Videos – Submit your video!
Submit your video files for review and possible presentation during the series. All video files will undergo a single-blind review process and if selected they will be presented anonymously during the webinar.

Video submissions are now being accepted for the following topics in the 2022 Video Mentorship Series:
  • Fixation of mesh to the pelvic floor during ventral mesh rectopexy
  • Left and right sided anastomotic techniques (including intracorporeal, double purse string, natural orifice extraction)
  • Rectal mucosal flaps
Video files must be 2 – 7 minutes in length of continuous uncut footage, showing only one step of a procedure as identified in the curriculum.
 
Videos should NOT be ‘slick’ examples.  We are looking for videos that show a problem to solve or technique to improve on. Authors can include a short note regarding why they submitted their video (for example “I got stuck at this point.“ or “How do I get set up better for this move?”) on the video submission form.

The Call for Videos is open. Please review these guidelines prior to submitting your video.
