Describe a typical day as a resident.

Surgeries at UAB usually stimulus at 7 a.m., and my time begins about two hours prior. I possess time to set up for my declension-form, see my patient in preop holding, and serve morning conference. Each day brings newly come experiences and different challenges. Over the way of residency, I have helped care according to patients ranging from premature neonates to octogenarians, and from healthy people undergoing planned outpatient surgeries to critically iniquitous patients having emergency procedures. Residents are typically relieved from the operating room at 3 p.m. so they can begin their call responsibilities or lend aid with preops and prepare for the next day’s cases.

I looked at programs entirely over the country, and I felt like UAB offered the most excellent combination of clinical experience and platonistic opportunities in an affordable and livable city.
