I spent the afternoon placing 2 foley catheters, an NG tube, and then a few hours practicing suturing and getting BLS-certified.
Immediately after this, our dean gathered our team together and bought us wine and pizza before our evening lecture.
My program rocks.
(I start surgery on Monday, guys! And I suck at suturing. I have suturing supplies to practice with this weekend – hopefully that will bring me up a few notches to “incompetent, but teachable.”)
(Or at the very least, maybe a step above “drugged monkey playing with string”.)
