Key Topics in Surgical Research and Methodology represents a comprehensive reference text accessible to the surgeon embarking on an academic career. Four key elements are covered: Surgical Research, Research Methodology, Practical Problems and Solutions on Research as well as Recent Developments and Future Prospects in Surgical Research and Practice.
From the Preface: "The aim of this book is to equip surgeons across all disciplines and specialities to enhance their academic know-how in order to successfully work within a surgical academic unit and to maximise their academic potential. It addresses a whole range of topics ranging from how to incorporate best surgical evidence, applying for grants, performing a research study, applying ethics to research, setting-up a surgical education programme and running an academic department. It also communicates many of the surgical technological highlights that are considered important in modern surgical practice
"The future of the surgical profession lies in the development of our knowledge, treatment resources and our most prized asset, surgeons themselves. We cannot only enhance our current strengths, but we require the continual advancement of the next generation of our trainees. A roadmap for the development of our future surgeons can be achieved through academic curricula. We therefore envisage this book as a foundation guide for the training of academic surgeons."
