To a medical student like me, the field of surgery is very intriguing, to say the least. The daily working life of a surgeon, or even that of a surgical trainee, can be jam-packed full of action, blood, guts and gore. Dull moments in surgery are hard to come by. Surgeons are able to test their hypotheses and see rapid, graphic results from their work. Students are often awed by this process. What also draws me to surgery is the immense satisfaction of being able to completely excise a cancer (hence providing a definitive cure), or relieve the pain of an intra-abdominal catastrophe, e.g. perforated appendix.
