Well, we are at that time of the trimester where the days seem
to drag a bit and we are concerned either with midterms or
double-checking our competencies, skills assessments and total
numbers for graduation.
Each intern is either busy seeing patients, busy scheduling
patients or busy with practicing competencies, discussing treatment
strategies, and assessing each other prior to sitting with a
clinician for assessment.
As I write this, I see my colleagues discussing botanicals
protocols for estrogen balance in a post-menopausal female, as well
as the proper settings for immersed ultrasound therapy for a wrist
As far as my competencies and numbers are concerned, I'm closing
in on my primary visits as the primary intern, pretty much have my
competencies covered except for a couple of items, and am ready to
start my assessment discussions.
That being said, time to get back to the grindstone, finish up
charting my last two patients, and hopefully end clinic on time
Until next week, keep your nose to the grindstone and we will
visit again soon!
