Welcome to the world of surgery. Where nothing heals light bright lights and cold steel. I'll hopefully be able to provide an intimate look at the work life of a surgery resident. I've been doing this residency thing for a while -- 4 1/2 years to be exact -- which means I'm in my last year of training. Now I'm looking for a job and all the fun that entails with the way our health care system is.
I realize I'm late to the scene of medical blogging, but that's okay. Many of the other blogs out there belong to the world of emergency medicine, internal medicine, pediatrics. As members of those specialities will immediately tell anyone, there is nothing quite like surgery.
Sleep deprivation, abuse, miracles, tragedies. Comin' right up.
