Mentoring is an often-discussed topic for which there are relatively few references. Surgical Mentoring attempts to bridge that gap. Mentoring present and future physicians to provide the best education and training for surgeons is an exceedingly important but less tangible topic than clinical or laboratory research. The 9 chapters of this 170-page book provide needed background and serve as a practical guide for faculty at entry and more senior levels of experience. Although the book is written for general surgeons, it is applicable to all surgical fields.
