When I’m working in a hospital setting as a physician, part of my everyday job duties involve going over consent forms with patients.

I am of course a medical physician, rather than a surgeon, so generally don’t have to go over them as often. But I do have to take consent regularly for certain interventions, including blood transfusions and minor procedures.
