My expectations were not only fulfilled but surpassed. Before this program, I wasn't sure if I would be interested in surgery. Now, I am very excited to explore surgical healthcare fields. Whenever I witnessed a certain type of surgery for the first time, whether it be coronary bypass surgery or a thyroidectomy, I was mesmerized by the level of expertise and confidence the surgeons had. It inspired me to one day achieve that same level of skill.
