Today, I was able to assist in an AV fistula formation procedure in my surgery rotation together with two of the eminent surgeons of the institute. I never had any experience in the real operating room set-up before since that wasn't part of the curriculum I had in my undergrad years. But, thanks to the surgeons and nurses who were patient with me when I wasn't able to comprehend some things... I was able to cope along the way. That was one of my firsts in the hospital setting and I must say I learned a lot from this experience.
