Students: Addendum

The first group of students finished the anesthesia rotation and tomorrow a new group will begin theirs. After the exam I conducted a short debriefing with the students to determine what can be improved. It's quite a daunting task to expose and hopefully teach and instill the basics of anesthesia, intensive care and chronic pain treatment; all in 10 days. Impossible you say? Nothing is impossible.

The students unanimously expressed their pleasant surprise that what they expected to be an airway management workshop, turned out to be a very enriching learning experience. This was most gratifying to say the least.

At the end of the debriefing, I wished them all success, and sent them on their way. Needless to say, I was very touched when they honored me with a gift. It is book of letters to and from Israel's foremost philosopher from the previous century: Yishayahu Leibowitz.
