About this book

This second edition book reinforces the curriculum of the Association for Academic Surgery (AAS) courses and also provides guidance to individual surgeons who have not had the opportunity to attend these courses. Thus, this book is a valuable reference for medical students, surgical residents, and young surgical faculty. It gives an overview of the other titles of the Success in Academic Surgery Series, and will include additional chapters on global surgery, surgical QI and getting started in leadership.

While many of the topics are stable over time, health services research is increasingly popular with surgical trainees and faculty, and funding is very different than it was when the first edition published back in 2012.

This second edition is the core book in the AAS Fall Courses, which is currently given to every attendee, as well as being suggested for the international courses, which take place in Australasia, Colombia, France, Italy, West Africa, Germany, etc.

Reviews

“The purpose is to provide guidance on how to achieve success in an academic career. … This book meets the objectives, including preparing academic surgeons for life outside of the operating room and the hospital. … the book is appropriate for practicing surgeons at all levels, as well as surgical residents and a few very mature and insightful medical students. … This is an excellent guide for academic surgeons or aspiring academic surgeons.” (Lillian M. Erdahl, Doody's Book Reviews, March, 2017)
