What Is a Surgical Resident?

What Is a Surgical Resident?

Surgeons, surgical residents, and nurse educators, under the leadership of the American College of Surgeons (ACS) Division of Education, have developed this guide targeted specifically for patients. The Patient Education Workgroup under the ACS Committee on Resident Education sought to help patients learn more about the surgical team, the role of the surgical resident, and how a patient benefits from a surgical resident’s involvement in his or her care. 

The guide explains the roles of various members of the surgical team and thanks patients for their vital role in the training of future surgeons.

The guide can be used in any practice setting where a patient might encounter a surgical resident.
