Most family physicians are not performing surgery during their daily schedule. It is important however for family physicians to learn how to efficiently and professionally interact with surgeons, be familiar with operating room procedures and the operating room experience, and guide our patients through the process of surgery beyond time spent in the operating room.
Our goal during residency training is to increase the residents’ confidence and competency to best serve our patients who may be contemplating, planning, going through, or recovering from surgery. This three-week rotation takes place mid-year during postgraduate year two and to maintain well-being, residents are never scheduled for overnight surgery call.
