Most patients with orthopedic or trauma conditions are treated by surgeons working in community hospitals. Even though this group of surgeons provides care to the majority of patients worldwide, very little research has been done on their continued professional development (CPD) needs. Culminating two years of study, this publication shares the discoveries of the author on the learning gaps and preferences of community hospital surgeons. It reveals the challenges these surgeons face when attempting to solve unique clinical problems and meet their medical education requirements and outlines potential solutions.
