Anesthesia Illustrated

Okay this is pretty cool stuff. Anesthesia Illustrated is a project of the Stanford University Anesthesia Informatics and Media Lab. The website broadcasts all the lectures that were recorded over the course of the three year anesthesia residency at the university. This is amazing work and it's all free, for now.

The videos cover a broad spectrum of topics. While many of them seem to be about obstetrics anesthesia, they range from the very basic, like how to properly induce anesthesia, to the complicated, like pediatric cardiac anesthesia.

This is almost like getting a Stanford anesthesia residency education for free. Between these webcasts and simulations as learning tools, young doctors in training may never have to talk to or touch a real live human being before they start their practices.
