This paper analyses the use of multimedia technology in training orthopaedic residents and assesses how such aids can improve residents’ ability to master treatments in orthopaedic surgery. To this end, a total of 120 resident trainees who had recently graduated from clinical medicine were recruited for this study, and were classified into two groups.  Based on which, the new teaching model using multimedia aids was studied and compared with traditional teaching model (mainly with oral presentation). . The results show that resident trainees with the new teaching model could be more active in thinking ability and interest, and have improved learning outcomes, compared with those with traditional teaching models. Meanwhile, the former trainees showed reduced passive, thereby their understating of key points was strengthened. Overall, the use of multimedia images improved the quality of teaching, transformed the teacher-centred clinical teaching model, and increased trainees’ level of satisfaction with the teaching methods. Therefore, this paper concludes that the use of multimedia images can significantly improve the quality of clinical teaching for resident trainees and should be widely promoted.
