In all fields of medicine, the COVID-19 pandemic has had an unprecedented impact on clinical practice, and this crisis has exposed a gap in surgical knowledge, skills, and performance.
This recent outbreak may be a major source of stress for healthcare workers. Fear and fatigue can be overwhelming and cause severe psychological distress.

These subjects had been discussed during the weekly fellows meeting session jointly organized by the IHU and the IRCAD France.
