Dear everyone

I was wondering what are the operative and procedural skills and techniques required (expected to be known) before applying and matching to PGY 1 surgical residency ?

Hi
I am not a resident but I did 2 months of electives in surgical specialties in the US. I can safely say that they don't require ANY procedural or operative skills before applying to the residency. They will teach you everything in the residency, especially in the PGY1 year with a lot of time being spent on models and simulators, and learning all about knots. So don't worry about these things. On the other hand if you already have a lot of procedural experience then it will be a plus point for you. Knowing more does not hurt anyone
