Things I have learned during my first week of being a 2nd year surgical resident:

1) Having an intern is like having a kid.  I'm just so anxious for how well they're doing.  I stay awake just thinking about it.

2) My residents were actually snooping behind my back when I was an intern and checking charts and stuff!!  No wonder they could always tell when I was lying.

3) Being a resident makes you feel POWERFUL.  Until someone asks you to do something and you remember that you don't know squat.

4) ...but the title sure does count for a lot, as snoop dogg intern points out (from 1:05)

  1. Being a second year resident isn't making me feel's just making me feel anxious. I want someone else to be in charge! Or to have fully trained residents working underneath me, rather than these green first year residents who keep forgetting that they can sign orders.
