To the Editor We write regarding the article by Oliver et al,1 which was recently discussed at CRAMSURG, an online journal club based in the UK (http://www.cramsurg.org). We would like to congratulate the authors for their work on resident operative autonomy.1 Autonomous operating by competent surgeons in training is a key objective of surgical training, and the COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on this important issue for trainees worldwide.2 We discussed a number of aspects of the article that we would like to raise.
