EDMONTON, AB. MARCH 29, 2011 – When Dr. Jonathan White came up with the idea to do surgery podcasts for University of Alberta medical students, he never imagined it would take off worldwide. The concept was that the podcasts would be a simple introduction for students studying surgery at the U of A. White wanted to make them accessible so he put them up on iTunes for free as ‘Surgery 101.’ They are averaging between 400 and 600 downloads every day from more than 100 countries worldwide.
