Abstract

Surgeons, trainees, and patients may be uncomfortable with the secrecy that surrounds the process of teaching and learning surgical procedures. Well structured training programs use a system of graded responsibility, supervision, and evaluation to ensure skill development and patient safety. Patient outcomes are generally excellent in training institutions. Disclosure of the role of trainees and their contribution to care enhances trust.
