Abstract

The word transition dates back to the 16th-century Latin word transitio or transire, which means to go across. It is the process or period of changing from 1 state or condition to another. For us, the most recent (and by far the most diffi-cult) transition was from trainee to independent attending surgeon. We have previously discussed that the term inde-pendent in this context is subjective and somewhat of an illusion because many senior surgeons rely on their partners during difficult cases or during especially tough times.
