The knowledge of the skills is fundamental in every medical curriculum. Therefore, the progress of expertise in surgery should correspond to the achievement of knowledge. Despite this, the proper valuation of surgical skills is not well established. In the current training background, the introduction of recognised testing for specific operative skills could be used to afford productive feedback and would be used in the resident evaluation identifying some deficiencies in the training programme. Nevertheless, the tools formerly existing are limited, although there is some evaluative scale to be used in the surgical training evaluation (1).
