This year, Bryn Mawr Communications teamed up with ophthalmology resident Eric Rosenberg, DO, to launch an Eyetube video resource collection exclusively for residents and fellows. Below is a primer on navigating Eyetube.net and contributing to this global surgical video library.
What is Eyetube?
Eyetube is a free video resource intended only for eye care professionals. Although YouTube may expand your exposure to patients, Eyetube provides a peer-to-peer platform for sharing educational content such as surgical videos, product demonstrations, and more. On average, more than 1,900 videos are watched globally on Eyetube each day!
How do I submit my surgical videos?
User-submitted content is the keystone of Eyetube’s community. We encourage you to contribute by visiting https://eyetube.net/other/submit.asp and completing the steps to submit a video. If your video has already been uploaded to YouTube, all you have to do is copy and paste the YouTube URL into the submission form.
Do I run the risk of violating HIPAA by submitting my surgical videos?
Most surgical centers have a clause in the regular patient consent form regarding use of photography and videos. As a rule of thumb, videos can be used for educational purposes if personally identifiable information (ie, patient name, IDs, dates, unique case history) is obscured or omitted.
Can I share the videos I submit on my social media accounts?
Yes! Our video pages include social buttons that make it easy for you to share your videos on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn.
