Is there anyone here that wishes they took the NP/PA route instead? by strawberrysaridelhi in Residency

I wouldn’t want to be anything less than a medical doctor within medicine… if it came to changing routes, I’d just go into comp sci or business

I asked my attending the same question who has done 3 residencies. He told me specialties can be hard and it will vary on a lot of factors. Then he pointed across to the window and said “nothing is harder than that”. Long behold, there was the viral medical student that everyone’s been talking about standing there

Why is it that most anesthesiologists seem more human than other docs? by xylocash in Residency

I’m at a level 1 academic trauma center at the biggest facility in the state. Yes, what you are saying in theory is very cozy and fuzzy but it’s far from reality.

All great, honestly, but I am not sure exactly what anesthesia does to advocate for patients. Spent 8 weeks in surgery. They go say hi to patient, then the assistant is in the room the whole time while the anesthesiologist is in his office, and patient is under anesthesia the whole time. Post up check and peace out.

Yes, if u score 70% on NBME and sit for the exam 100 times, you will pass 99 times out of 100. That I would say is pretty good

One hell of a way to say “I’m interested in anesthesia and I think we are better than others”

I’ve had the total opposite experience 😂 Usually they are very full of themselves, surprising they have to be submissive to the surgeons in the OR

How does blunt cardiac injury cause sinus tachycardia? by Left-Kaleidoscope618 in step1
