Authoring team

The role of the house officer in general surgery is a nebulous one, but an attempt will be made here to summarise the more important features; their aims and some advice concerning their efficient accomplishment.

  • clerking of routine admissions
  • putting into practice the (non-surgical) plans of management
  • care of the post operative patient
  • admission of acutely ill patients when on call
  • coping with problems which arise in patients when on cover
  • operating lists
