About this book

Surgical education is a rapidly expanding area of surgical research and career interest, and as the  Association for Academic Surgery (AAS) Fall Courses (www.aasurg.org) and International courses offer more and more specialty tracking there is a greater need for an accompanying textbook to supplement the material presented in the courses.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This guide introduces surgeons to the history of and methodology related to clinical research. … Senior surgical trainees and junior faculty are an appropriate audience for this work … . This is a worthy introduction to this aspect of academic practice. … it describes well the challenges faced by those seeking a career in clinical research as well as the tools that offer the opportunity for success with the growing variety of technical paths available for study design.” (David J. Dries, Doody’s Book Reviews, February, 2014)
