Hi everyone, I've been trying to boost my clinical experience since my applications aren't going too well this year. I didn't know how to get experience, so I asked my OB/GYN doctor how he got his. He told me that he shadowed a doctor for a while and then asked if I would like to work with him! He is so nice. In the last week, I have watched three surgeries - an exploratory laparoscopy/hysteroscopy, a hysterectomy (abdominal incision), and today a c-section. At first, I was afraid that I would be out of place, but it has really been fun. All the staff are very nice to me, and even the patient's husband didn't question my presence in the OR today. Just thought I would give my plug for shadowing. It has been one of the coolest things I have ever done and it's very inspiring!
