© 2023 Association of Program Directors in Surgery. The ‘no training today, no surgeons tomorrow’ campaign on social media has been a rallying call for all surgeons worldwide to prioritize training as part of the COVID-19 pandemic recovery process. The campaign calls for all trainers to treat every case as a training opportunity. However, this raises some important questions. Who are the surgical trainers responsible for these changes? Are modern surgical trainers defined by a role within their department? How can such contributions to training be recognized? These questions are discussed within this perspectives article, including the need for the professionalization of the trainer role and how contributions to training can be formalized and supported within departments and at a national or international level.
