Back On Campus for Labs & Clinic

We returned to campus this week for in-person face-to-face labs and clinic internships. It was exciting to be back, and to see some of my classmates (from a physical distance). I had my first official shift as a hydro intern which was pretty exciting.

It seems so silly, but as an intern, you put a tag on the door so that the clinicians and other interns know where you are. I was pretty excited to have my name on a door. It made me grateful to be back, grateful to be wrapping up my third year, and thankful to finally be entering the internship phase of my education! I graduate next August, and I think this next year is going to fly by! I truly think I am going to blink, and it will all be over.


We still have a lot of Zoom calls each week, since our lectures are still online, in addition to in-person labs and clinic shifts. I did my hair for my first day in the clinic, and thankfully it looked great for my Zoom call. Unfortunately, the walk to the clinic from my on-campus apartment ruined my hair due to the humidity. At least I have photographic proof that I tried to do my hair and look presentable! Plus, I saw a rainbow on campus one day this week, which is always super fun!

My name is Belinda, but I prefer to go by Lindy. I am in my final year as a Naturopathic Medical student at National University of Health Sciences. I’m originally from Maryland and will always consider it to be my home. I live on campus, in the Bucholz building with my dog, Lily. I love the sport of triathlon and will totally geek out if anyone wants to talk bikes or racing with me! I’m looking forward to blogging about study tips, ways to have fun on campus, and all the details of a full-time medical student. I love talking with people, so if you have any questions please email me at [email protected]
