5 years'experience with a structured operative training programme for neurosurgical residents.
The operative neurosurgical training programme in our clinic was restructured from 1991-93 with the concept of having a frame for the categories and the volume of operations for training year 1 to 6 and to continuously escalate the complexity of the interventions.
In the present report the experiences gained so far as well as the deficiencies are described.
Between 1991 and 1995 the number of major neurosurgical operations was in the range of 2100 per year, and about 41-48% of these operations were done - under supervision by residents.
By slowly reducing the number of residents from 13 to 9, the trainees started to gain surgical experience earlier, and the average number of operations performed per year increased markedly (from 82 to 122), approximating more to our preplanned figures, also in the various categories.
An important aspect is therefore to adapt the number of trainees relative to the available operative case material.
According to our preliminary data, about 250 - 300 operations per year are needed to train adequately one resident.
The evaluation also showed deficiencies in some categories, e.g. in pain treatment and peripheral nerve surgery here care must be taken to better fulfil the official requirements.
The object ofa 6-year education is to offer a well balanced training programme with systematic escalation ofsurgical responsibility until full competency is reached.
However, this goal needs to be defined more precisely. (...)
