Abstract

As the need for improved methods of assessing surgical competence grows, it is imperative to establish the basic infrastructure to ensure the ability to communicate among educators, education researchers, responsible training bodies, and credentialing boards. A workshop was conducted to provide a foundation for communication and a standardization of definitions, measurements, and criteria. Future conferences and workshops will be needed to review and refine this initial framework.
