Please accept my apologies in advance. I would have posted this question on the pre-med board, but they most likely would not know the answer to this question. I'm a clinical technician and work in the OR (operating cell savers, IABP's, assisting perfusionist, MDA, and CRNA, etc.). I mainly work on open hearts and ortho cases, but I sit in on other cases and observe. Most of the surgeons know me and are aware of my aspirations of med school. I usually end up at the head of the table and get tutored on anatomy. It's narly to see the variety of what's out their in the arena of slice and dice, but it's the hearts that really rock my world. I can tell you how to cannulate, how to size a mitral valve replacement, how and where to suture down the mammary...I live for this stuff. My question is, at an interview, should I say that this is what I want to do? In what ways could this work against me. Did any of you have a good idea of where you wanted to end up?
