Well, another tri has come and gone. I can't believe my
9th trimester is already coming to an end. I have
to say it was a pretty eventful tri. Clinic is a great experience
and I'm amazed at how much I still continue to learn. I hope some
of my stories of triumphs and failures were helpful and maybe a
Some of the 8th and 9th Trimester interns.
Finals week is a stressful time everyone. It's important to
continue to prepare for your tests, and be confident that you know
your material. When you know that you have your material down, it
takes the anxiety down to a manageable level. There is a light at
the end of the tunnel, I promise. There are only two weeks of
exams, then a nice break to regroup.

If you have a chance during the break, reach out to a local DC
to see if you can shadow them. I know you probably want to be as
far away from anything chiro after finals, but shadowing doctors is
one of the best professional moves you can make as a student. I
would try to shadow at least two doctors during each break to
create a relationship with future colleagues and try to see what
works and what doesn't in the real world. It's only a day off your
break and it's extremely worth it.
Sunday night's Rays game.
I hope everyone has a killer break. I had an awesome weekend,
fishing Friday night (caught a 22 inch Snook, and a 40 lb. drum, no
big deal), went to the WaZoo beer and food festival at the zoo on
Saturday, and capped off the weekend at a Rays game on Sunday.
There is always something to do down here in Florida, and with your
break coming up, take advantage and recharge for another trimester.
Thanks for reading; I'll be back in a few weeks.
Catch ya on the flip side,
