ABSTRACT: Developing an electronic teaching and training portfolio

Technological advances, in particular the rise of the internet, have led to dramatic changes in medical education. The recent global financial crisis and issues with medical staffing have meant that training programs and universities are increasingly exploring electronic means to provide efficient and cost effective education techniques. In this article, we explore methods by which orthopedic trainees can develop their educational portfolio through electronic resources and similarly, how training or residency programs can utilize these advances in technology to both increase efficiency and enhance their teaching reputation. Finally, we explore the merits of trainees keeping track of their careers through electronic portfolios.
