New Spring 2013 AOM Interns

This week is a spotlight blog of recognition to our new interns at the AOM clinic. I remember my first day as an intern was a memorable experience. My experience was extremely useful in increasing my confidence and the continued development of my clinical skills. Interning in the AOM clinic can feel hectic and chaotic at times, seeing 3-4 patients in 4-hour shift, not including the required necessary paper work.

It's a process. The process is necessary because it is about our transformation. Metaphorically, speaking it reminds me of the transformation of a caterpillar into a beautiful butterfly. Knowing what is it is like to walk in the shoes of an intern is important because it demonstrates our future success as a practitioner. I truly believe that my interning experience here at NUHS is a rite of passage into my successful solo practice.

I wanted to introduce a few our new AOM interns on the Tuesday morning and afternoon shifts. They were extremely cooperative and excited about the photo opp. These new interns are hard working, dedicated and compassionate. They have such great positive synergy. I am excited and honored to be working alongside my new fellow internees. Please contact the NUHS Whole Health Clinic and make an appointment today and support our new interns.

National University has great internship and externship opportunities. We have a free Veterans PTSD clinic from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Tuesdays. If you know of any active or retired armed forces personnel, policemen, fireman or any stoic personnel, please refer them to our PTSD clinic. In addition, hospital experience is available at Stroger Hospital Pain Clinic on Wednesdays and Thursdays. There are even research projects available at the Lombard campus. It is important to take advantage of all the opportunities offered by National. Lastly, I have also heard there are possible talks of third AOM intern opportunity in the very near future. I will keep you posted!

Thank you for your continued support of the AOM blog! Have a great week!
