This morning we were all excited because we were finally going to begin surgery. After we set up the OR (Interplast Australia, who we have no affiliation with, had left some supplies and Shafquat located some supplies he had from a previous Interplast US trip), we all gathered in the OR with the local nurses and Shafquat’s residents. After Jon took the team through the emergency scenarios (what to do in case of a number of different emergency situations), Tony addressed the residents. He explained that one of them would be assigned to each patient, and they would be asked to present each case and eventually perform surgeries. They seemed eager to participate. What a great learning experience for them! There are four women residents this year.
