Can only apply during HO year for entry as baby MO (ie PGY2). I was the last batch who could still apply as medical student (but still didnt get in lol)

Marry a good guy. I think nothing beats having a good family at the end of the day.

Dying on operating table does not happen often. If the patient is not fit for surgery they should not be on the operating table in fhe first place.

Surgeon and anesthetist will not agree to go ahead. Also all death on operating table becomes coroner case and puts both surgeon and anesthetist in the hot seat for possible negligence and malpractice lawsuit.

Seeing people die in ER is probably what you were referring to which is common.
