surgery rotation

Fortunately, my surgery rotation was not as horrendous as the videos below.  Both my attendings and residents were pretty understanding and helpful for the most part.  But I did hear some horror stories from a few of my colleagues that wouldn't be too far off from these sad but true video.  I can, however, attest to waking up at 3:40 am and grabbing AWS (already worn scrubs) and not caring because it seemed like you just left the hospital and now you're headed back.  I can also attest to holding a retractor for nearly two hours when an inanimate object could've done a better job.  And yes, they do have inanimate retractors that do a better job than med students.

Part I
