Abstract :

Several points of differences in surgical residency programs can be found among European countries. Despite the fact that gradual medical education is really well structured and organized all over the world, there are no standardized curricula for surgical specialist's training. The teaching staffs of residency programs are mainly consultants, mentors and experienced surgeons who were selected according to their surgical expertise without any teaching experience. In 2015 a survey have been assessed the characteristics of the specialist's training in surgery (general, thoracic, vascular, pediatric, plastic surgery, urology, orthopedics, traumatology, etc.). The following details have been highlighted that one third of residents received only verbal information during their practical process or the 6 year surgical training wasnÔ??t previously planned for almost 49% of surgical residents in Germany. The issues are similar to these rates in many other European countries. The background of our study is the need to improve specialist's training in surgery and the lack of Pan-European standardization. The 'train the trainers' association with the members from western, central and eastern Europe, supported by the Erasmus program of the European commission is going to determine the unified requirements and curriculum for the pedagogical and didactic training of surgical trainers. Finally, the profile and curriculum will be completed by a multilingual e-learning program.
