Traditionally, surgical trainees acquire technical and nontechnical skills in the operating room, but resident operative time is decreasing. Hu and colleagues developed a coaching intervention in which 10 senior residents reviewed an intraoperative video post hoc with the operative attending surgeon. Qualitative and quantitative analyses demonstrated that teaching during coaching was more individualized to each resident and focused on higher-level concepts such as decision making.
