Today's my first day in surgery rotation and i was asked to scrub-in for a minor surgery.
The surgeon was conversing with me earlier regarding my last rotation, which was Pedia. At the minor OR she asked me what do i want to take as a specialization.
I paused for awhile, thinking hard what to answer.
At the back of my mind, i want to say Pedia.
But as you all know, my first option was Reconstructive Surgery. So, that's what i said.
I told her "I want to be Reconstructive Surgeon."
The Surgeon smiled.
and she said "you need to make a good impression to me then"
My face turned red. I didn't knew prior that she's a reconstructive surgeon.
After that, she's been teaching me a lot of stuff.
She had another minor OR and she specifically asked me to scrub-in. She even asked me to excise the epidermoid cyst.then stitch the wound together.
now i'm starting to get confused.
Pedia vs. Surgery
pwede naman both. Pediatric Surgeon. ehehe
