I'm a new CA-1 and I have to admit, I'm feeling concerned. Although I've been excited to start anesthesiology, now that the day has come I find myself very stressed out, and constantly feeling worried that I'm either going to harm my patients, or at the very least, be the worst resident out there. My question is, did others have similar feelings at/near the start of their residencies? And if so, did they get over it? Did certain things help? Did anyone leave? I find myself nervous about administering drugs without running them by the attending, constantly stressing about the "what-ifs" of the OR, and in general, second-guessing my every move.... I'm worried I may have found myself in the wrong specialty. Let me be clear, I am in a very supportive program -- it's not a malignant program that's making me feel this way. Any comments or links to helpful sites are greatly appreciated!
