The COVID-19 pandemic prevented doctors from attending surgical meetings or conferences where they learned surgical skills from others and shared surgical experiences. It also resulted in the rapid use of webinars in obstetrics and gynecology meetings. While webinars or virtual meetings enable distance learning and replace face-to-face meetings using various teleconferencing software programs, many attendees are not satisfied and find it difficult to learn surgical techniques using commercially available telecommunication programs. Therefore, dedicated webinars are necessary to present emerging surgical technologies, satisfy the attendees, and achieve a successful outcome. This article reviews the existing telecommunication programs, new presentation technologies, and proposed webinars developments to improve its delivery of surgical techniques and training during the COVID-19 pandemic and in the future.
