Abstract

Many educators believe that an outcomes-based approach to surgical education best addresses the need for greater public accountability and patient safety in surgical education. To achieve this end, surgical educators need to understand the basic principles of curriculum design and demonstrate a willingness to apply these educational methods within their training programs.
