Surgical/clinical anatomy

Yesterday and today, we had a few hours of lecture on surgical and clinical anatomy (that is – how what we’re learning in gross anatomy and lectures applies to the real world in surgery).  On the one hand, it helped get across that what we’re doing right now is very relevant to the practice of medicine, which was pretty neat.  On the other hand… I don’t know if surgeons really like to show graphic pictures because they find it interesting, or if they just really like freaking med students out or what, but there were some really REALLY disturbing images in some of those surgical anatomy lectures.  In reviewing for the test on Friday, I need to go over them again, and every time I see them, my stomach twists in knots and I feel queasy for quite a while afterwards (even now, as I type).

Urgh.  Well, at least I know I don’t want to be a surgeon now.

(… weird, I definitely posted this in early October, like the 9th or so, but for some reason it changed to posting it now…)
