Mark O'Reilly interviews Brian Conyer, co-founder and CEO of GIBLIB the online streaming platform, about his vision for GIBLIB in the future and where it fits into medical education.
GIBLIB, named after Dr. John Heysham Gibbon, the revolutionary surgeon that invented the heart-lung machine, is an online streaming platform that provides medical professionals with access to high-fidelity, immersive 360-degree virtual reality (VR) video content of current medical topics and surgical procedures. The videos closely emulate the operating room environment, including camera angles from the surgeon’s point of view, and feature expert physicians at leading academic medical centers.
The company’s content provides students and medical professionals around the world with access to a wide variety of medical lectures and surgeries from places such as Stanford Children’s Hospital and the Keck School of Medicine at the University of Southern California. Besides the clear educational benefit for medical students, the service also allows physicians to stay up-to-date on the latest and most advanced surgical procedures being practiced.
GIBLIB recently announced a partnership with Cedars-Sinai Medical Center to deliver the first ever Continuing Medical Education (CME) accredited course filmed exclusively in 360-degree virtual reality. On the heels of this, we are excited to feature an exclusive interview with the co-founder and CEO, Brian Conyer.
