About this book

This book is designed to provide the reader with comprehension of the principles of contemporary surgical education and skills to design and implement effective curricula that include learning theory, needs assessments, curriculum development, effective teaching methods, valid and reliable assessment of learners, and comprehensive program evaluation.
 
This text will provide a comprehensive, state-of-the art review of this field and will serve as a valuable resource for anyone wishing to become a better educator regardless of the level of the trainee. The book will review how people learn and how to vary teaching methods accordingly.  It will cover curriculum planning, measurement and performance assessment, teaching residents to teach, coaching, promoting professionalism, teaching surgeons to lead, and burnout. It will aid in identifying differences in generations and how to select students and residents who will thrive in your program. Specifics on teaching in the operating room, use of new technologies and honing of feedback skills will be addressed.  The effect of duty hours and due process for struggling learners will also be addressed as well as preparing residents for beyond residency. Specifics on how to set up simulation centers and utilize this technology will also be discussed. These are a few of the topics which will prepare the reader to excel in education and thus be able to positively influence patient care well beyond that of any one individual.

Reviews

“This is a comprehensive book dedicated to improving patient care by encouraging and supporting excellence in surgical education. … The book systematically covers both educational theory and its practical implementation while troubleshooting common issues in surgical education. … This book is written for surgeon‐educators, but this could be broadly interpreted as anyone who has a role in surgical education; it does not need to be limited to surgeons.” (Julia Shelton, Doody's Book Reviews, March, 2018)
