We are all used to the acronym PROMS (patient-related outcome measures), as a tool to measure patient outcomes, moreover, with regret not many surveys been carried out to, assess DROMS, where ‘D’ stands for Doctor especially during the ongoing pandemic. With a lot of humility and proudness, attached is the 3-4 minute survey to capture emotional and physical effects during Covid-19 pandemic in our surgical profession. It would be a great opportunity to seek, assess and evaluate the data, that yields facts at a national scale amongst the OG Cancer, HPB, Bariatric and benign Upper GI, Colorectal surgical community, which can be shared in the national meeting. A lot of work been done to produce this researched and VALIDATED questionnaire, prepared by a few colleagues.
