How to Be Successful on Your Sub-Internship

Be Teachable

  • Retain what you are taught in the clinic and the OR and then apply it later in the same situation.

Be Helpful

  • In the OR and clinic DO NOT ASK what you can do to help. Observe what people are doing, how patients are cared for and what the flow is, then ask or start helping with what you have observed.
  • Later you can ask people specific questions about how can help the team be more efficient.
  • Show independent thought and initiative.


  • Know what your cases are ahead of time.
  • Know who you will be working with.
  • Research the patient, the indications for surgery and the surgical technique.
  • Take notes when you are learning so that you can refer to them later.
