About this book


This text serves as a comprehensive, state-of-the art definitive reference on surgical mentorship and leadership. This book is a practical, useful guide that reviews select topics on leadership and mentorship, as well as provides key information on how to launch a successful “young” surgical career. This volume focuses on key points on how to identify mentors, highlight mentor-mentee “pearls”, as well as define key leadership traits in being successful as an academic surgeon.  Chapters  are written by national and international leaders in their fields and have boxes that highlight key lessons learned and leadership pearls for easy reference. 

Surgical Mentorship and Leadership is as a very useful resource for young surgical faculty, as well as fellows and residents in a broad array of surgical training programs.
