Currently, I just finished week 3/8 of Surgery at Mt. Zion/Parnassus. MZ is UCSF's cancer center, and I love being on the surgical oncology White service (the Gold service at MZ does colorectal cases). White surgeries include GI malignancies (whipple's, etc), liver resections, and melanoma.
Surgical oncology seems like a great field, there's a lot of satisfaction to be gained from whacking out a tumor.
P.S. It seems like a bad dream...how did Prop 8 AND Prop 2 BOTH pass? Since when do chickens enjoy advances in rights...while humans do not?
