Every member of the surgical team usually has a personal journal with notes and diagrams. I too have always put all I appreciated into my little notebook of diagrams and notes, whenever I learned anything valuable in a case. I find it useful even now to revise my notes before I sleep on the night before a challenging case. This handbook was derived from that habit, and it will help you see what unique things I saw during my training in India.
We all know that there are deficiencies in learning cardiac surgery from books, a single surgical tutor or a small institute doing less work. By giving you concisely all the basic steps of each operation, we aim to make the team’s training period a lot easier, the learning curve shorter and you will then be a more confident cardiac surgical trainee. This, I hope, will help your mentor find you as a very capable person to teach.
Cheers and all the very best!
