The concept for the open access online repository of clinical skills videos was developed when Dr. O’Keeffe was studying for his own medical degree. He realised that there was a paucity of high quality material on the internet for clinical skills training and what was available was prohibitively expensive to access. Therefore on completion of his medical degree and with a technical background via PhD Engineering, he collaborated with several colleagues in medicine and engineering to develop a set of free high quality clinical skills videos for medical students worldwide.
