Last night was the 2nd annual "Go back to your own country party". It's where we celebrate the leaving of the rotators that come through our department. For some reason, our department has had a history of foreign anesthetists (as they are called at home) come and spend a year or so here as a part of their training. Most are from the UK. Their training is much longer then it is here, so they act as attending anesthesiologists when they arrive here because of their experience. Anyway for the most part they are well trained, relatively young, and very enthusiastic. They are part of the strength of our program in my opinion. It's nice that the department is willing to pay for such a celebration. It's a good boost to morale, especially since it's March already and there's still snow on the ground. Lots of fun was had by all. Even me, though I couldn't drink on the boss's (sp?) dime because I was on call. bleah. Still I had a good time hanging out.
