Hi !

I don't know if you know the site and the newsletter, both called
"ORLive" (understand : Operating Room Live)

I've been subscribing to both for years, even if I never translate
surgery- or devices/surgical instruments- related documents.

It is an excellent source of medical information. The subscription is
for free.

Most of the information is provided as videos or broadcasts.

As an example, here is the announcement for tomorrow, that I copied
from their site :

Live Broadcast
Plastic Reconstructive Procedures Using the V-Loc^(TM) Absorbable
Wound Closure Device

Live January 18, 2012 6:00 PM (CET = 18h00), 12:00 AM (EST)

The site main URL is :

I think this site might be of great help for medical translators wishing
to improve their training.

Have a nice evening

Interesting, I will try. Jan 18, 2012

Usually, if I translate a surgery procedure, I will search for related information and related videos and watch them. I never thought of studying medicine everyday.
