Would it be smarter to retake the exam so I don't have to limit myself in terms of which schools I apply to, or to only apply to schools that would accept my score? I... Read more

For those of us that practice in states without tort reform (CA/NY/NJ/PA,IL, etc..) lets talk about ways to minimize the risk of getting wiped clean by a plaintiff's suit: -Does anyone have any special documentation of informed consent for anesthetic risks? -For those of you in supervising roles, do you include any specific documentation of the your anesthetic plan in case the CRNA omits something major? E.g., for beach-chair position do you document that you instructed the CRNA to keep... Read more
