The Organisation

7. What was the general atmosphere in your office?

The atmosphere in the office was good and everyone was really fun, but it got a little more stressed coming up to surgeon meetings as alot of people had a lot of work to do with such little time.

When we first started it was a little unorganized which was probably more our fault as placement students. It seems a lot better this year but i have no complaints on the organisation.
