November brings the beginning of a new trimester. I am now in 8th tri and am thinking I will really enjoy this trimester. With 8th tri, the class load is decreased so that we can spend more time in the clinics treating patients. It is going to be really nice to be able to spend more time in the clinic versus the classroom!!
In December we will be allowed to apply for clearance to the AHC (Academic Health Center), meaning that seeing outpatients from the community is not too far away. I can’t wait!! Also, all the classes this trimester have a practical application to real life practice, which makes them a lot more interesting and easy to pay attention to.
Also, a big weight was lifted off my shoulders two weeks ago when I got my Part II National Boards scores back and passed all of the sections! That means two parts down and two more boards parts to go!! It makes all the stress and hard studying worth it!
Well, I don’t have too much to say since we have only been back in classes a week, but I am very excited to see what this trimester has to offer!
