I think I've talked about it before but when we're at Duke North we have a board where we can write down the specimens that we'd like to have first dibs on if one happens to come in. I always have a hard time trying to figure out what to want since I feel like I'm consistently getting a good cross section of organs and disease processes.
I have jotted down a few things though. I'm not ambitious enough to be asking for a whipple just yet, but I wouldn't be opposed to an esophagogastrectomy coming across my table or a laryngectomy. Which might be more about the fact that some of my classmates have done those specimens and I don't want to feel like I'm lagging behind, or I'm not where I should be.
