WHAT MADE YOU WANT TO BECOME A SURGEON?
Well, I’ve always loved a challenge, and becoming a surgeon is a big challenge!
It’s a combination of intense detail and rigorous training in both theory and skills, along with a creative problem-solving mentality.
It requires excellent judgement and the ability to synthesise multiple points of information and bring together a team on the day.
There’s nothing more satisfying than finishing a complicated 8-hour operation and seeing the patient wake up again.
It’s an absolute privilege.
