As I blogged about previously, a very unique aspect of being an
AOM student at NUHS is the ability to be a resident at Stroger's
Hospital. I'm a resident at Stroger's and am finding it to be a
priceless experience! Learning within a high paced hospital setting
is invaluable. I am discovering a variety of ways to offer patient
care that are not found in many textbooks.
Our clinician, Frank Yurasek, PhD, MSOM, LAc, shares many
treatment strategies with the residents that he learned first-hand
by ascended AOM and TCM masters from China.
Mary Thuermer is also a resident at Stroger's Hospital. This is
her second rotation at Stroger's. Additionally, she is graduating
this trimester. Since she is nearing graduation, she has been a
part of many educational experiences and resources offered by NUHS.
From what I gather, she feels her residency at Stroger's has been
monumental in her NUHS learning experience.
In addition to the information Dr. Yurasek shares with us, we
are learning a great deal of information and clinical skills
through our patients. Since this is a fairly new program at
Stroger's, we feel extremely fortunate to have new and recurring
patients trust us with their AOM care. This is a very new
experience for most of our patients, so it feels very rewarding to
be able to be a part of this journey into holistic medicine,
