The emergence and maturation of the concept of blended learning in public and military education may prove equally valuable in CME surgical education and training. Creating a learner-centric environment in which multiple modes of education are encouraged, available, integrated, and accredited can increase the level of competence achieved in CME courses. This paper defines a framework for blended surgical training using principles developed for the military and it is applied in courses at a major post-graduate surgical education center.
