Innovators of USC: Doctors Have an Eye on GIBLIB, the 'Netflix of Medical Education'

USC News (01/04/19) Chu, Emily

University of Southern California alumni have set up an online library of studio-quality, on-demand videos of continuing medical education (CME)-accredited lectures and surgical procedures in 4K or 360 virtual reality called GIBLIB. The archive's CME module offers physicians an alternative to traveling to conferences to earn CME accreditation by accessing videos of those events from their phones or computers. GIBLIB initially concentrated on general surgery videos, but mounting requests for specialty procedures has spurred the library to expand its content via partnerships with institutions like Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. GIBLIB currently gets its videos through alliances with six of the top 10 U.S. hospitals. The library has ambitions of becoming the world's largest online repository of CME-credited educational lectures.
