The existence and future of every scientific area is directly dependent on advanced education and the quality of work performed. The aim was to develop a program in order to improve education in pediatric surgery and to ensure quality of the work performed by any surgeon operating on children. We developed a module containing extensive information on pathogenesis, symptoms, diagnosis, treatment plans as well as OR-videos and case reports on the most common routine procedures in pediatric surgery. This CD-ROM is now available and can be installed on every PC without special computer knowledge. The expansion and up-dating of the material is technically achieved with the help of an authoring tool.
