An Overview of Opportunities in Surgical Education

Part of the Success in Academic Surgery book series (SIAS)


Surgical education is part of the core mission of any department of surgery. The traditional view of surgical education largely focuses on teaching medical students and residents. In addition, leadership in surgical education was thought of as a stepping stone to other leadership positions within the department, training in education or teaching was not required, and it was thought that anyone was capable of being a surgical educator.
