Things every surgery intern should have on them

 

  1. #15 blade
  2. Cellphone
  3. Sterile & non-sterile gloves that fit
  4. 14-gauge angiocath
  5. 0 silk stitch
  6. Eye shield
  7. Suture removal kit
  8. Lubricant
  9. 4 x 4 gauze
  10. Betadyn swab
  11. Picture of your spouse, child, dog, etc. (if not on cellphone)
  12. $5

The time you’ll save not foraging for these things during residency adds up to about two months. Plus you might save a life.
