We had the opportunity today to learn how to be first assist in surgery. The opportunities that we have been given as second year medical students makes me feel that we aren’t 100% being thrown to the wolves when we start clinical rotations as 3rd year medical students in July. Don’t get me wrong, we are learning the bare minimum basic principles of how to conduct ourselves in a hospital, operating room, or clinic and still have SO much to learn. We are just very blessed to be given all of these opportunities by our school collaborating with the amazing teachers, programs, and students at Tulsa Tech.
This was great timing in the semester. One more thing to keep me motivated to get me through boards. 8 weeks, 8 weeks.
