Abstract

Having been inspired by prior master surgeon educators, many seek careers as surgeon educators. However, the definition of surgeon educator has developed into a complex and exciting career trajectory that requires delineation beyond master surgeon teacher. The integration of the science of knowledge and skill acquisition into surgical training and administration has led to multiple career paths within the areas previously associated broadly with surgical education. In this article, we define the many paths of the surgeon educator and take the reader through a potential framework for establishing a mission while simultaneously taking steps in personal and professional development that promote career advancement in surgical education.
