Residency is a roller coaster; unlike anything you’ve dealt with before.  

You’re finally working for a living, and your opinions matter—surprisingly! 

Here’s my guide to understanding, comprehending, and surviving residency, especially as a first-year resident: 

The first-year residents are the true bottom feeders. 

For anything that goes wrong in the hospital, the first-year resident is the first responder. 

In addition to the skills, you need in your speciality, you’ll pick up some tricks of the trade you never thought you’d need. 

As a first-year resident, it’s your job to groom the interns. 

Keeping them happy and healthy (well-fed) helps you out a lot in the long run.  

You’ll learn that your only leverage against interns is their attendance. Training a fresh group every couple of days is a test of your leadership skills, something you can improve during residency. 

Don’t expect comfort any time soon. The residency will push you out of your comfort zone, but this will also help you become more self-sufficient and independent. 

Always carry a bag with your essentials – water, food (biscuits/chocolates), a stethoscope, a notebook, etc. On duty days, you’ll be running between wards, and your self-sufficient bag will save the day. 

Your department is your new fraternity and family. 

Residency is the time to hone your decision-making skills. Your findings during the daily examination will help you make the best decisions for the patient.

When it comes to surgical attire, the surgical cap, scrubs suit, and 3-ply surgical mask are essential for the doctor and other medical personnel. 

The surgical cap is worn to keep the doctor’s hair from getting contaminated from the patient’s wound, while the scrubs suit is worn to keep the doctor and medical personnel from spreading germs from one patient to another. 

Women’s & Men’s scrubs are also available, allowing you to feel comfortable in the operating room. 

With these items of clothing, medical personnel are sure to remain safe and protected while performing their duties.
