kem2127 Posted June 3, 2011 Share Posted June 3, 2011 I haven't found any threads on this and it may be irrelevant, however does anyone have any tips for someone who is left-handed going into certain procedures or things I may need to modify during my clinical rotations as a PA student or in professional practice? This may seem silly but since many tools (like scissors for example) are made for right hand use only, I just want a heads up. I'm wondering if this may affect me in my ER and surgery rotations. I still have an entire year before I start my clinical component but want to be prepared. And, if you ARE left-handed, is there anything you found regarding procedures particularly difficult to learn from someone who is right-handed? I think that watching techniques of right-handed people might be harder to understand/master, since the angle and direction of movement are different (just like a child trying to learn how to write certain letters from a right-handed teacher).
