Surgery

We complete one surgery rotation in the first year and one in the second year. Our time is divided between the OR and surgery clinic at our discretion, as long as we first-assist on at least fifty cases total (25 minimum during first year). This is easily accomplished, and the rotation is an enjoyable one. We are not expected to function as surgery residents; rather, our focus is on becoming involved in the procedures for which we will be referring our patients in the future and becoming comfortable with their indications, risks, and benefits.
