N2 - BACKGROUND: In the past, surgical training has been based on traditional apprenticeship model of mentoring. To cope with the rapidly changing environment of modern surgery, the mentoring process may require significant modernization.METHODS: Literature for this review was identified by searching for the MeSH heading ‘mentors’ in Ovid MEDLINE, EMBASE, PsycINFO and Cochrane Library databases (1950 to September 2010). The literature was reviewed to specifically identify challenges of mentoring future surgeons and to delineate a framework to establish a mentor–mentee relationship by means of a formal mentoring scheme.RESULTS: Multidimensional approaches, models and methods of delivering mentoring are essential to meet the challenges of modern surgery. We advocate a 10-stage approach to implement a formal mentoring scheme at local, national and international levels.CONCLUSION: Formalizing the mentoring process, with local, national and international schemes, will initiate mentoring relationships and cultivate a mentoring culture. Ultimately, this will maintain and improve patient care.
