  • critically reflect upon day-to-day surgical practice in the context of recent advances, and engage in critical dialogue with peers and experts in other specialties
  • apply the general principles of clinical study design, ethics, and statistics to critically evaluate the scientific literature in surgical research, and make informed judgements on new and emerging issues in surgery
  • exercise a high level of autonomy and initiative in professional activities at a level of independent surgical practice
