Student will also have the opportunity to help technicians in anesthesia monitoring as well as hands-on surgical assistance in routine cases when appropriate. Student will also receive training and fully participate in day to day receptionist duty. Student will receive training and be expected to discharge routine surgical cases when appropriate.
