In The Surgical clinics of North America

The evolution of the knowledge economy and technology industry have fundamentally changed the learning environments occupied by contemporary surgical trainees and created pressures that will force the surgical community to consider. Although some learning differences are intrinsic to the generations themselves, these differences are primarily a function of the environments in which surgeons of different generations trained. Acknowledgment of the principles of connectivism and thoughtful integration of artificial intelligence and computerized decision support tools must play a central role in charting the future course of surgical education.
