Study Details

Study Description

Brief Summary

The development of multiple training pathways to foster competent hepatopancreatobiliary (HPB) surgeons has led to a diverse group of surgical subspecialists. The objective of our study was to determine the current scope of practice of today's HPB surgeons. An online survey was sent to all the Americas Hepato-Pancreato-Biliary Association's members to assess the current scope of practice of today's HPB surgeons. We found very few surgeons run a solo HPB practice, so changes may be needed in HPB training to provide uniformity and enhance the scope of practice for future HPB surgeons.
