Mayo Clinic has a unique way to gage just how well its surgical residents are doing. Twice a year, the clinic holds a "Surgical Olympics," putting its residents through a obstacle course of sorts. Today ABC 6 was given an exclusive look at how it all works. Reading a chest xray, inserting a needle into the neck to clear a blockage..."And boom, we're in." Or quietly manipulating virtual laparoscopic tools to a precise angle and size. This is Mayo Clinic's Surgical Olympics.
