The Changing Landscape of Surgery

Surgical procedures are a piece of the healthcare puzzle, allowing us to diagnose, treat, and manage illnesses and injuries. In the era of the novel Coronavirus, COVID19, surgeons and the healthcare field have needed to change and upgrade how and when we do surgeries to protect patients and healthcare workers.

Surgical techniques have changed thanks to research and a growing use of artificial intelligence, robotics, and computer vision to aid human expertise. The operating room is now more than just human hands. It's a combination of our best and brightest with the advanced tools that make it possible.

Public health will continue to drive advancements in medical education and surgical technique. Whether it's expanding surgery's part in oncology or improving elective surgeries, edX can provide a foundation for your learning.
