Medical school on an airplane

This plane is flying around Vietnam not just performing eye surgery on people that can’t afford to go to a hospital for surgery but it also has a teaching room to teach local doctors to perform the surgery themselves. Flying eye hospital aids world’s poor – Yahoo! News.

The front section of the plane has been converted into a classroom, complete with a medical library and a big screen that broadcasts close-up interactive surgeries from the operating room, located in the middle of the aircraft.

It’s always good to teach people how to do it themselves and this is a great idea on how to bring training (and handson, live training) to the people that need it.
