Every surgeon is different, and sometimes change up. Know the procedure, pay attention and think "how would I do it". Take a deep breath, and have your sponges ready ! Surgeons like to know that you are interested, use your training and your preceptor, you'll be fine ! Try not to take things personally, they do it to all newbies !
