This paper, based on an integrated perspective of both the knowledge-based view and the practice-based view, aims to explore how surgical skills are acquired, assimilated, transferred and applied by doctors who have been trained outside and returned to their own hospitals to carry out new surgical projects and establish new departments, and then analyzed how the doctors acquired and transferred their knowledge and skills to their own surgical teams during their training, which constructed a theoretical framework for knowledge transfer of surgical operation skills and discussed the theoretical and practical guidance implications of the framework. An exploratory study approach was adopted to collect and analyze the qualitative data. The result provides the guidance for knowledge transfer in surgical operations and add further knowledge to the existing literature.
