I had intended to journal throughout my surgery clerkship, but the hours have been so extensive and I have been so tired that I haven’t done so.
That said, 10 weeks into a 12 week rotation: I LOVE surgery. I have had so much fun with it. It has been a great service to start out with. I love to operating room, scrubbing, wound care, cutting, sewing, etc.
More to come later, but it’s been a very positive experience and I hope that I have half as much fun on my future rotations.
I have family medicine next (after a much needed week long vacation, of course). I have signed up to rotate at a Spanish speaking clinic.
