Naturopathic Medicine Week Victory, White Coat Ceremony & Midterms

These last couple of weeks have been super fun, super stressful, but all around awesome! A couple weeks ago, we had Naturopathic Medicine Week. Our school competed hard, under the leadership of our chapter president Janice, who organized what seemed like a thousand events to help our school earn points in the national competition where we competed against the other schools.

It turns out her effort paid off! After initially thinking we came in 3rd place, apparently scores were recalculated, and it turns out we won! We won the Golden Avocado! 

This might not seem like a huge deal, but I can assure you…it is! Our school now has both the NMSA Cup trophy and the Golden Avocado!  I think both trophies are a testament to the strength of our program, our students, and our faculty for helping give us the knowledge and skills to get there.

One of the many events I attended during Naturopathic Medicine Week was a creative arts event.  There were all sorts of craft projects you could do. I took a canvas, but since I am not super artistic, I decided to write on the canvas “You Got This.” I then had people at the event sign it…while I was walking around campus with it, other students wanted to sign it as well, which was super fun. During the brutal few weeks of midterm exams it was a good reminder to each of us to hang in there.

Friday was the White Coat Ceremony for the new students. I decided to attend with a couple friends who started with me. We can’t believe we have been here almost a year, it seems like just yesterday we were having our own White Coat Ceremony. These photos make me smile…I like to flip my hair before a photo. I didn’t realize that part was getting photographed. Anyway, congratulations again to the new students!

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]
