Synopsis

Both Dr. Davé and Mark emphasize TATA, or tools, access, tissue handling, and anatomy, when practicing and teaching how to master surgery. They discuss the benefits of fostering a “sandbox-learning” environment, or a zone of safety where learners can practice techniques on patients. They also delve into systematic approaches for surgical training and the challenges in measuring the progress of trainees. Most importantly, Dr. Davé and Mark explore how to teach trainees not just surgery, but how to learn about surgery so that they feel competent doing new surgeries as their career in medicine progresses.
