As an operating assistant, you are an indispensable link in the operating room! Together with the rest of the surgery team, you ensure that an operation goes as smoothly as possible. You perform medical support activities for the surgeon. You know what the treatments entail and what complications can arise. You prepare the supplies and ensure that the instruments are served to the surgeon at the right time during the surgery. In addition, you guide the patient; you explain and reassure him/her. It is important that you can work well in a team, work accurately and concentrate well. Endurance is essential for this. Some operations take a long time and all the while it is important to stay alert.
Stress resistance is also essential. A situation can suddenly turn around and you
