CORDOVA-AGUILAR, Alberto  and  CEDILLO-RAMIREZ, Lucy Perla Gulliana. Characteristics of the mentor in surgery and its contribution in the education of the future. Rev. Fac. Med. Hum. [online]. 2021, vol.21, n.2, pp.433-437. ISSN 1814-5469.

Mentoring in surgery is the art of guiding a future surgeon toward specific academic and professional goals that are likely to determine career success. It requires a solid mentor-resident relationship and a mentor with certain characteristics such as research productivity, understanding of pedagogy and the application of educational technology. The mentor in surgery is the one who adequately guides the resident's various clinical-surgical experiences to achieve meaningful learning. Experience and motivation are the main characteristics of a good mentor, but currently the availability of time and knowledge of educational technology will be essential to build a good relationship with the mentee.
