Sorry to Jack Fizzy's blog bit miss yours.
Thanks! I did start a new one.... not sure it's going to be as juicy though.
I miss your blog too!
HA! Love it
a truly excellent and, better yet, USEFUL guide!
I have my first rotation in a few days, and it's in surgery.Is this an accurate guide?
ask- can i hold that and pull as hard as i can until my hands cramp and spasm? win win.
So funny, I am in my surgery rotation now, definitely don't ask the scrub nurse, I find they generally dislike/hate students in the OR! However, the attending I am with is way nicer than I was anticipating!
I asked my attending a question in the OR and he responded "who the hell cares?"(side note: said attending won the resident teaching award at my program this past year)This guide is disturbingly accurate. Also, if you're a med student, don't ask the resident a question in the OR. If we can't answer it, it makes us look really stupid in front of the attending :-P
That. I'll answer anything any time, if at all able to. Just please, don't ask in the OR. For the above reason, and because my hands stop in midair when I start talking. Not good.
hilarious! Yes, the way to survive the OR as a med student is to keep your head down and try hard to pretend like you're not there.
I once asked the attending a question in the OR. He bounced the question to the resident, who didn't know the answer and was subsequently embarrassed. The resident glared at me. I think he was going to exact some kind of revenge on me but luckily is what my last day on his service.
