--- for me: im a 1st year at UNCLE so of course being a first year wanna be a surgeon (maybe cardiothoracics) but i have also spent a fair bit of time with an obstetrician and have scrbbed in on like 6 ceasars which is the coolest operation ever hahaha WHO KNOWS
So many questions!
Firstly (and this made me laugh), I’m not Mrs. Med Student. In fact, I’m not even remotely close to married.
As for credentials—I’m currently in my clinical years in Victoria, and becoming more and more undecided about my specialty as the year progresses. I was going to do psych, and then plastics, and now I’m really liking general medicine because of all the patient contact… I’ve safely ruled out general surgery though. Never going to do that.
And scrubbed in in first year? That’s insane. I was just happy to get into a pair of scrubs in first year. (And I honestly thought it was the coolest thing ever. I FELT LIKE A REAL DOCTOR. And now, since “assisting” in theatre a few times, I laugh at how naive I was.)
