  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.
  2. Balloon Angiography Kit:(Patent Pending) The kit was developed by Dr. Gerard to teach the concepts of angiography to medical students, residents and all allied health professionals. The kit includes an instruction booklet, balloons, guidewires, Seldinger needles and all the utilities needed to learn the techniques of angiography, without the patient. For more information, contact Dr. Gerard.
  3. Balloon Anatomy Kit:(Patent Pending) The kit was developed by Dr. Gerard to teach a 3 dimensional technique for learning the organs, vessels and all the structures of the body. The kit includes the balloons and instruction booklets needed to learn and create balloon anatomy. For more information, contact Dr. Gerard.
  4. "Give Me 30 Minutes And One Balloon And I Will Teach You Nuclear Cardiology": This lecture was presented at Maimonides Medical Center and several other institutions with great success in the understanding of nuclear cardiology. Dr. Gerard will teach you the basic understanding of how the nuclear cardiology is performed, the views of the heart and blood supply to each region, stress testing and nuclear pharmacology agents, how artifacts occur and finally how to read a nuclear cardiology study. This lecture has been repeated many times as per request of medical residents and attendings and presented at grand rounds.
  5. How To Help Teach Biology Using Balloons: Dr. Gerard has lectured teachers and students at several schools including Bishop Ford High School and Ogden Middle School on using balloons which are 3 dimensional to help understand the concepts of biology and anatomy.
  6. How To Help Teach Anatomy and Physiology Using Balloons:Dr. Gerard has utilized balloons to teach the anatomy utilized by radiologists for many years. He can virtually create the human body from various balloons, show diseases and treatments all with balloon. This lecture gives the teacher and student a 3 dimensional understanding of anatomy and therefore allows increased learning and memory retention. It also makes the course more interesting and fun to learn.
  7. Learning To Read A Chest Radiograph Using Balloons:Dr. Gerard was involved in teaching the Lucy Squire Course in Radiology for many years under the supervision of Dr. Lucy Squire. He created his own methods of analyzing chest radiographs which have been met with great success in understanding how to approach the chest radiograph by medical students, radiology and medical residents and attendings and emergency medicine residents. He utilizes balloons with chest radiographs to simulate anatomy and pathology to help understand chest anatomy and radiography.
  8. Creative Medical Teaching Seminar: "Teaching The Teacher": This seminar has been developed in response to residents and medical students, as well as fellow physicians who are seeking new methods of teaching. This seminar includes instruction and creating professional powerpoint presentations, innovative and creative methods of organizing and adding new methods of teaching.
  9. Creating Professional Powerpoint Presentations:This course teaches the essentials of creating professional powerpoint presentations, the art of incorporating photos and avi/mpeg files, utilizing sound effects, incorporating excel files, creating gif files, etc.
  10. Understanding Computer Problems: Dr. Gerard has helped assist a significant number of physicians within and outside the hospital with computer problems. This course was therefore created with the medical professional in mind. The course makes individuals aware of the most common problems encountered on a daily basis, both software and hardware, the use of antivirus programs, how to identify and eliminate malware and adware, connecting to the internet including wireless issues, what to do when your computer slows down and how to speed it up, backing up your data and what to do in case of a crash, using flash and backup hard drives, what to look for when purchasing a computer, and many other issues.

  12. Martial Arts For The Health Care Professional: See pages in web site for all details on this unique and essential course.
  13. Emergency CT for the nuclear medicine physician interpreting PET/CT studies: This set of lectures is intended for the nuclear medicine physician who interprets PET/CT studies and teaches aspects of acute CT findings that require immediate attention.
  14. Understanding PET/CT: Lecture for the general public on PET/CT (that anyone can understand).
  15. Emergency Nuclear Medicine 24/7: The lecture discusses all aspect of emergency nuclear medicine procedures, particulary important for radiology and nuclear medicine residents, as well as attendings who are responsible for the interpretation of emergency nuclear medicine procedures.
  16. The Radiographic Recognition of Retained Foreign Bodies: The lecture is intended to teach the basics of "Gossybipomas", with special attention to the radiographic recognition of retained foreign bodies. This lecture has been successfully presented at surgical grand rounds and at Peer review conferences. This conference is essential to all surgical and medical attendings and residents.
