The Japan Surgical Society (JSS) started e-learning in 2019 as a supplementary tool for JSS members to apply for and maintain certification by Japanese medial specialty boards. Ten e-learning courses on medical safety, infection control, medical ethics, traumatology, clinical research, and postgraduate surgical education were available in October 2021. The number of viewers was 97 in fiscal year 2019, 3,981 in 2020, and 2,666 in mid-2021. Although the role of e-learning in the JSS is currently limited to the specialty board system, the course contents on basic surgical techniques are believed to be helpful in the education of young surgeons. In addition, e-learning in the JSS might become a common platform for surgical education in collaboration with subspecialty societies. E-Learning will likely become more prevalent.
