They will work with a team of reviewers and contributors.

Editors and Co-Editors will be able to upload all types of format of new and curated educational material, presentations, courses, seminars, webinars, interactive cases, surgical videos and guides on to the new digital LMS and will be responsible for ensuring that the educational and training content is high quality, dynamic and innovative. Each item can be linked to quizzes, discussions, curriculums, logs and other related learning opportunities that might be of interest. Full training and administrative support will be provided to use the LMS.
