This week is a spotlight blog of recognition to our new interns
at the AOM clinic. I remember my first day as an intern was a
memorable experience. My experience was extremely useful in
increasing my confidence and the continued development of my
clinical skills. Interning in the AOM clinic can feel hectic and
chaotic at times, seeing 3-4 patients in 4-hour shift, not
including the required necessary paper work.
It's a process. The process is necessary because it is about our
transformation. Metaphorically, speaking it reminds me of the
transformation of a caterpillar into a beautiful butterfly. Knowing
what is it is like to walk in the shoes of an intern is important
because it demonstrates our future success as a practitioner. I
truly believe that my interning experience here at NUHS is a rite
of passage into my successful solo practice.

I wanted to introduce a few our new AOM interns on the Tuesday
morning and afternoon shifts. They were extremely cooperative and
excited about the photo opp. These new interns are hard working,
dedicated and compassionate. They have such great positive synergy.
I am excited and honored to be working alongside my new fellow
internees. Please contact the NUHS Whole Health Clinic and make an
appointment today and support our new interns.

National University has great internship and externship
opportunities. We have a free Veterans PTSD clinic from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00
p.m. on Tuesdays. If you know of any active or retired armed forces
personnel, policemen, fireman or any stoic personnel, please refer
them to our PTSD clinic. In addition, hospital experience is
Stroger Hospital Pain Clinic on Wednesdays and Thursdays. There
are even research projects available at the
Lombard campus. It is important to take advantage of all the
opportunities offered by National. Lastly, I have also heard there
are possible talks of third AOM intern opportunity in the very near
future. I will keep you posted!
Thank you for your continued support of the AOM blog! Have a
