OK, I realize it's midterms and probably not that happy of a
week, but remember--we're now over halfway done with this tri. At
the very least, we're checking off boxes and meeting milestones.
That alone, is an accomplishment.
Also for those that just received board scores back,
Congratulations. Just getting to this point is a HUGE
It's a big week down here for Tri 6. Those taking an elective
(not me) have 6 exams. The rest of us have 5. Three of those exams
are for different radiology courses--which are admittedly not my
forte. Sometimes all the radiopaque and radiolucent areas look like
blobs, swirls, and blurs, rather than tumors, cysts, and sclerosis.
I'll do what I can. Sometimes that's all we can do. Do what we can
and hope for the best. Maybe by the end of my education, I'll be
conditioned to be prepared for the amount of exams at midterms and
finals. Right now though, it's still a shock. I would much rather
have one exam a week. Wait. Let me think about that some more.
The master's program is going fairly well. There's a LOT of
work, but I'm learning a tremendous amount. One of the most
difficult tasks was trying to redesign and interpret the functional
medicine tree--which basically outlines all the factors involved in
considering a patient and their conditions. I ended up redrawing
the entire tree and turning it into more of a schematic, adding a
bunch of stuff in there. It's not pretty, but I'll include that
here for your perusal. Let me know what you think. I'm definitely
open to feedback. Did I leave anything out?

That's it from me. Good luck with midterms and everything else
you have going on. We'll see you next week. You'll be fine.
Everything's gonna be fine.
