The following is a list of the "Creative Medical Teaching Products And Professional Seminars" (Created and presented by Dr. Perry Gerard):

  1. Creating An Improved Radiology Resident: Techniques to Help Detect Critical Findings: This lecture was presented at the 109th Annual Meeting of the American Roentgen Ray Society Meeting in Boston, MA on April 2009. The lecture is intended to teach unique methods of enhancing observational skills to physicians, in an effort to enhance the detection of critical findings.

Medical Ventriloquism

Dr. Gerard has utilized ventriloquist figures to teach medicine over many years, and recently incorporated marionette figures. They are used to teach individuals of any age about any medical condition, and can explain procedures in a way that anyone can understand. Dr. Gerard has 10 different original figures that can be utilized to accommodate different audiences.

It is now being recognized that there are better ways to learn than through the traditional methods. Institutions are beginning to show an increased awareness of the importance of the way individuals learn. Many of the standard methods utilized to convey knowledge have been shown to be relatively ineffective in an individuals ability to retain important concepts.
