Does Residency Education = More Responsibility in OR?

Recommended Posts

I'd like to respond to this even though it is 9 months old.  I have the opportunity to start and Ortho residency.  I believe in our institution we allow autonomy with experience and repeated examples of quality work.  If you have good hands and decision-making skills, you will be given more responsibilities.  If you are well trained but can't seem to make things work in the OR, then you get less autonomy.  Now, I'd imagine those who are residency trained have more experience and are more likely to have good hands and better able to make good decisions when compared to an untrained ortho pa, therefore, the answer to your question is yes they would.
