Surgery 101

Welcome to Surgery 101, a series of podcasts produced with the help of the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Canada. The podcasts are intended to serve as brief introductions or reviews of surgical topics for medical students. We've aimed to cover a single topic in between 10-20 minutes so that you can quickly get a good idea of the basic concepts involved. Every episode is divided into chapters and concludes with several key points to summarize the topic. We are always keen to receive your feedback on our podcasts, and we are accepting suggestions for additional topics. 'Surgery 101' was created by Dr Parveen Boora and Dr Jonathan White, and is supported by the Department of Surgery at the University of Alberta. Our 2010 series of podcasts are brought to you by the Undergrad Surgery Mobile Podcasting Studio Team which is: Jonathan and many wonderful students, with the assistance of the surgeons of Edmonton.

In recent times, the terms “equity, diversity, and inclusion” or “EDI” have become buzzwords for academic institutions to demonstrate their commitment to social accountability. Although incredible work is being done, it is important to remember why it was necessary in the first place and what the ultimate goals are. Today, as I discuss EDI in surgical education, I’d like to highlight these are my own thoughts at this stage in my training as I continue to learn and unlearn, and also thank you, the listener, for engaging in what can often be a difficult discussion.

There are no formal “learning objectives” for this episode, but I hope you will be able to reflect on the following ideas:

  1. The role of Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) in surgical education regarding what is taught, why, and by whom.
  2. How to reflect on and grow your own EDI understanding as you go through your medical training.
