1. If troll, mediocre effort.
2. If not troll, I can't imagine that you would begin to shadow surgeries within your first week. Try to spend more time shadowing the surgeon and perhaps you will eventually get to have time in the OR. For now take advantage of the physician-to-patient dynamic, and learn from it.

I'm not usually one to care about grammar or spelling, I mean I make plenty of mistakes and typos so how can I judge... But this post, man... o_O

Anyway, I don't see why it wouldn't count. You watched a doctor interact with patients.

hi. thnx 4 ur input. Would just like 2 say this is not a troll post. i have shadowed surgeons of diff specialty and have bean to OR "within the first week" or even the day. but specifically for dis specialty, i did not get 2... Not bc she didnt trust me but bc there simply was no surgery scheduled when i waz a shadow and so was wonderjng if adcoms would look down on me claiming that i shadowed a surgeon but had no OR time!! thnx

I hope for your sake, your spelling is at least trolling.
