ROJoson’s Experiences in Teleaudioconferencing and Televideoconferencing in Medicine

In March 1994, with the support of Dr. Art Pesigan, head of the Open University of UP Manila, I was conducting teleconferences using audio equipment with surgical resident-trainees of Zamboanga City Medical Center (formerly Zamboanga Regional Hospital) with me in Manila. Below is the abstract of a paper that I published in 1995.

Teleconference as a learning mode for surgical trainees based in Zamboanga City.

The University of the Philippines Manila Journal
June 1995 1(1):22-25

Teleconferencing is a form of distance education in which a conference is held between two parties who are not face-to-face with each other. This paper describes the authors experience with teleconferencing using audio equipment as a learning mode for surgical trainees based in Zamboanga City (ZC). Teleconferences were utilized in the authors General Surgery Course in ZC starting March 1994. The objectives were to evaluate the progress of students learning in the General Surgery course, to provide more teaching and learning activities, and to promote more frequent interactions between the ZC students and Metro Manila faculty. The design made use of active student learning and participatory activities, such as case discussion, panel discussion, and debate. At the end of five teleconferences held so far, the objectives were assessed to have been attained and teleconferencing will continue to be used to enhance the General Surgery Course of the author.

In 2016, I started using Skype for televideoconferencing.

I did Teleconference Activities with various provincial groups of learners.  I did not have to physically go to the provinces to conduct learning sessions as often as I should.  I just stayed in my house in Metro Manila and conduct the distance education mode of learning to provincial learners.   In 2016, through the Teleconference Activities, I taught hospital administration, quality management system, safety promotion and disaster preparedness program  and public health (maternal and neonatal death control management system).

I started the 2016 Teleconference Activities with Zamboanga City Medical Center Maternal Death Control Management System Team in March 31, 2016 using Skype, followed by a series of teleconferences with the Team thereafter for the whole year of 2016.
