Question special

The FIRST trial has led us to critically appraise the structure and policies of surgery training. As we enter the last couple days of this open forum (but certainly not the end of this discussion), I’d like to zoom out and ask more about aspirational ideas for the future surgical residency. Dr. Bass brought up the idea of competency-based training as a counterpoint to conventional surgical training. Dr. Freischlag emphasized the need for real-time and longitudinal feedback for residents. What does your future surgical residency look like?
