Unable to provideThe Society of Laparoendoscopic Surgeons organized the Gap Analysis Workshop for Training for Reintegration of minimally invasive Surgical Skills in order to discuss gaps and develop a curriculum for military and civilian personnel who are away from their peacetime specialty. The workshop assembled key personnel who convened to survey current strategies, discuss the major factors influencing skill decay, and brainstorm solutions for improving skill retention, and resources for developing a reintegration course. The key research accomplishments of this workshop include an Overview of Ideal Reintegration Program for Returning Surgeon Soldiers List of Characteristics of Program, List of Domains that should be included, List and description of Program Elements Summary of Program Outcomes and Evaluation Example of how Reintegration Program Timeline can be integrated into the Deployment Timeline and Recommendations for a Coordinated Program. Recommendations made here may be adaptable for civilian use as all surgeons face many similar issues while reentering the workforce. A coordinated reentry effort will create the opportunity for military surgeons as well as civilians to remain on the cutting edge of laparoscopic and minimally invasive surgery and to continue to work to provide the best possible care to their patients. This workshop essentially lays the groundwork for the potential development of a maintenance and reintegration program for laparoscopic skills.
