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!
