Surgical training has evolved significantly in the last two decades. Although current and future residents have the same goals as their predecessors, training has gone through significant changes over the last few years. From limited works hours to stricter hospital credentialing to advances in technology, residents face numerous challenges than their mentors did not, both during and after residency/fellowship. This episode presents some of the challenges that a modern surgical resident faces in an effort bridge the divide between trainees and the trainers. We hope this will help tailor surgical education to fit current trends, institutional variations, and increasing obligations.
