Title: Future Surgical Scientist-How Do We Train Them?
Description: The surgeon-scientist, whether a clinical, translational, or basic science investigator, is an important cornerstone of academic surgery. Changes in clinical training, residency/fellowship requirements, as well as an increased focus on clinical productivity in conjunction with decreased research funding, have all led to an increased strain on how we train future surgeon-scientists. Training of surgeon-scientists requires protected time for research, excellent mentorship, and a team-based approach.
