Pandemic of Webinars
would have noticed that the activities of Uroacademy appear to have slowed
arrival of COVID and its effect on the society at large, there has been
considerable stoppage of clinical/operative work among the Urologists. This had
one good effect in that it sparked enthusiasm in many to devote their time for
education by conducting Webinars on various topics closer to their heart.
though there was an avalanche of Webinars, most were quite useful for all those
who attended barring few which were for personal aggrandizement. But that is
at many centres, Clinical and Operative work has restarted, how many of these stalwarts
will find time for participating in such webinars organized by many which
includes abundance of pharmaceuticals. The private Organizations conducted
Webinars have dwarfed the efforts of USI. I have been noticing, and have made
many efforts to attend as many webinars as possible but with 5 or 6 Webinars in
a day and some clashing with time, make it impossible for anyone to partake all
that is offered. I am not against these webinars in any way. But moderation
need be exercised. There is a saying â€˜even Amrith, if consumed in Excess, is a
restarting of Clinical and operative work and the need to attend the backlog
will necessarily bring down the number of Webinars and we will then have some equipoise
in such activities.
discovered many young enthusiastic Teachers with all this pandemic of Webinars
and their continued availability in the activities of Uroacademy is solicited. Many
of the silent observers in Uroacademy are prolific presenters and their participation
in this group will continue to benefit all of us Urologists in enhancing our knowledge.
