Surgical Education in the Future
This chapter explores an ideal surgical programme for the future. Previous chapters have primed us for what we know we can achieve. Here, we amalgamate the many solutions to the challenges we currently face. We gaze into our crystal ball looking to the year 2030. In doing so, there will be focal aspects of surgical education where changes in the way we consider, teach and evaluate what we do has conceptually evolved. Using some focal points below, we can consider the way surgical education and training programmes will eventually look and feel.
