About this book

​ Success in Academic Surgery:  Developing a Career in Surgical Education is a unique and portable handbook that offers careers advice and guidance to medical students, surgical residents and others considering a career within surgery.   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. Success in Academic Surgery:  Developing a Career in Surgical Education expands on some of the important issues related to surgical education highlighted in the AAS courses by addressing key areas such as how to acquire the skills necessary for success in this field, how to develop a research program in surgical education as well as offering guidance on applying for research grants, among other things.
