I'm shadowing an Ortho Monday in his office and then Thursday in the OR. He said to bring a copy of my resume and also a letter stating why I'm coming to the OR. He said the OR letter isn't his policy it's something new put in place by the hospital. What should I say in it? I don't want to say anything dumb and then I'm not allowed to go into the OR. Also, probably been asked before but for the day in the office, tie or no tie? The guy I'm shadowing is also a foot and ankle specialist so I'm assuming that his patients all have some type of foot or lower leg injury. Would it be wise to go over osteology a bit especially in that area? I remember the first time I shadowed an ortho in high school he asked me if I knew what something was on an xray. Turns out it was the epiphyseal plate and after taking anatomy and seeing that it was a pretty basic landmark I felt like a tard for not knowing that. Any other suggestions from your experiences?
