First official week of clinic = done, successful and exhausted!
Getting back into the swing of clinic once again reminded me of my
strengths and weaknesses. The best part is being with a group of
people that are very encouraging, supportive and intelligent! The
group of interns that I have the pleasure to work with is great in
many ways and I know that I will definitely learn a lot from them.
The clinicians also have been very supportive and understanding as
all of the eighth trimester interns are getting into the clinic
groove with treating patients, writing SOAP notes and getting
accustomed to all the paper work.
Although I've been through a year of clinic already from the
chiropractic program, being in the ND clinic is completely
different with different standards, paperwork, patient types, and
treatment modalities. I already feel challenged just thinking about
all the information that I have to pull out of my brain in order to
deliver the best care possible for the patient. Overall, the week
was a success however I felt exhausted!
For anyone that is interested in coming to see me or any of the
other lovely interns I'm with, here are the hours:
- Tuesday 2:30-7pm
- Wednesday 1:30-7pm
- Thursday 12:30-7pm
If you make an appointment, just make sure to request me! :)
Expect your first visit to be LONG (1-2 hours) due to the fact that
we are interns and have to check in with our clinicians at every
step, but if you are student, it is so important to experience the
medicine that you are going into! :)
At my friend's college graduation.
After an exhausting mental and physical week, a relaxing weekend
was well needed and that's what we got! Ryan and I went to Rockford
to spend time with my family and it was rejuvenation for me. We
celebrated one of my best friend's graduating from college with her
English degree, and spent a lot of time with my adorable nephew
Xander. After lots of food, laughs, and baby kisses, we had to
leave, but I can't wait to see him again!
The first picture above just shows how much fun he is! He loved
playing with his Uncle Ryan and our dog Oliver! And to top it all
off, my grandma flew from California to spend the summer here and
she finally got to meet Xander (her first great-grandson), shown
Blissor: My nephew Xander. He is so much fun!!
