Abstract

In 2016, Gunma University Hospital's Medical Accident Investigation Committee released a report reiterating the necessity of medical education and the need for surgeons to master non-technical skills. We designed a 17-h training course for surgical instructors, designed to teach participants how to sufficiently educate surgeon trainees and encourage their professional identity formation. A post-training survey showed that participants improved their awareness, and their behavioral changes led to favorable team performances. We then began offering a 3-h workshop focusing on the participants' experiences. We propose that the training course using participant narratives is required and effective to establish surgeons' self-reflection and professional identity as surgeons.
