I am currently an M3 interested in surgery. Alot of what I hear from our residents is "Stay here, our residents get to do alot of surgery, and they start early." I hear stories from residents saying at "other schools," interns barely see the inside of an OR. Whereas, at our program, interns are doing lap appys, hernia repairs, lumpectomies, and mastectomies. We had a whipple done the other day and it was the attending, R4, and M3. The resident did a majority of the anastomoses. Is the operative experience of our interns the rule or the exception? Because I honestly don't have any idea about other schools.
