A Time to Bloom

by Mar 26, 2021

In my last blog, Spring is Definitely…Springing!, I reflected on the hopefulness of the new season, the pleasant surprises associated with the changes that are now occurring, and the opportunity to appreciate the beauty of all that blooms. I think of the transition to this new season very much like the transition to a new phase in the curriculum with the Clinic Internships being the seasons in which chiropractic students begin to bloom.

Clinic Internship I is the first opportunity to observe real life patient care and, also the time to start being involved in actual chiropractic treatment. I remember the excitement and the gravity of this new experience, as the application of all that I learned in the Basic and Clinical Sciences was starting to come together. Phase I and Phase II were like seeds being planted, and Clinic Internship I was similar to watering and planting more seed. Clinic Internship II seems very much like a time of blooming, as I now have my own established patients and participate in some very interesting and complex patient cases.

I imagine that Clinic Internship III will be similar to a blooming and flowering experience, one in which the kind of physician I hope to be can be seen and appreciated, as I continue to be nourished and pruned in the curriculum, in preparation for being a chiropractor in the field.

In this new season, what are the new blooms that you can observe and appreciate?
