Why I Won’t Specialise in Surgery: Reason #143

I don’t think there are really that many reasons, but this is one of them. I actually referred to a forceps as “scissors” on call the other night, and had a trauma surgeon look at me with great concern. What? If it has handles like scissors it is a scissors, done. Also it was three o’ clock in the morning.

Speaking of which, I am on 24-hour trauma call tomorrow. Good night, and enjoy.

Coming up: To everyone who finds this blog searching “how to get into medical school in South Africa”, I’m working on it, I swear. Just trying to remember everything and be accurate. Also, an update on the post about the Desroches-case.
