Learned a lot today such a great experience. I wanted to share some advice I tell all my junior residents that seem to help me throughout the years: 1. Never be the last person to know something..ie always bump up knowledge up the chain. 2. The most important question I ask a patient in the morning for daily rounds is how are you feeling this morning…we always get concerned as surgeons whether the patient ate, pass gas, pain is controlled, etc but I feel like patients own self assessment especially in comparison to other days is very informative 3. Never be afraid to ask a question…this advice came from my mom who always said what’s the worse that can happen from asking a question and usually the answer was nothing…
