Day #1 of Surgery

   Today was the orientation for my surgery clerkship, and while getting introduced to the OR was exciting, I learned two very important lessons:

1.  I don't know anything

2. Get comfortable with looking like an idiot

  Tomorrow is my first real day, and I start on trauma surgery.  I have to report at 5:45am, and that's only because I don't have any patients yet.  From now on, I'll be reporting at about 5am everyday, six days a week.  Here we go!


  1. Enjoy! The schedule sounds brutal...glad it's you and not me, to be honest.

  2. omg...that all sounds so exciting (and really early in the morning). good luck on your legit first day!

  3. Good luck!! Trauma can be a little low in OR time but the resuscitations are super cool. Have fun, and practice cutting clothes off fast! ;)
