  2. Abstract

This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:

a)To determine the effectiveness of educational interventions to improve surgeon technical performance and patient health outcomes.

b)To examine whether there is any difference in the effectiveness of training programs for different characteristics such as level of training, surgical specialty, surgical techniques (open and minimally invasive surgery) and clinical setting.
