I'll start off. As of right now I'm a week away from spring break, my last one ever. I'll be going home for a week (Mar 21-29). I was considering flying out to Houston for a few days during that time, but I'm not too sure at the moment. If anyone else was willng to go I'd be much more inclined. Not that I don't wanna hang out with you Scott, but I need some persuasion at the moment. I was planning to do something with the girlfriend, but she's having some family issues that I won't get into.
I have my medical board exam coming up June 20th, which is composed of information from my 2 years here at med school. So pretty much its gonna be a bitch and I need to get cracking on studying for it asap.
On a day to day basis I have lectures, which I usually dont go to unless they are mandatory. I listen to these lectures at home or somewhere on campus during my own time instead. We do have mandatory stuff atleast twice a week though. For example on Tuesdays I see a patient at our clinic and treat him with some manipulative techniques. Like if they come in with back pain I can treat that, or neck pain or whatever. Typically when they come back next week they say it helped a lot, so it makes me feel good and somewhat competent. On Thursdays sometimes I have to go work at random clinics and do various things. A few weeks back I had to give this 8 year old kid a full physical exam, including genital check etc.
Next year I'll be starting my clinical rotations, so no more lectures. It'll be as close to the real world that I've gotten so far, pretty much like a job. I'll be working in a town called Petersburg in WV. Its in the middle of nowhere so its probably gonna be extremely boring outside of work. Thinking about it actually depresses me, I need to do something about that. I do get 2 months of elective rotations and 1 month of break though, so atleast I can look forward to that. The elective rotations can be done anywhere, I'd like to do it in VB, so I need to find some doctor around there that will let me work with him. At the moment I'm hoping that Polaks dad will help me out, I need to email him or something.
Anyway, I just wrote stuff as it came to mind, kind of haphazard. This kind of reminds me of those Christmas cards you get that updates you on peoples family. Whatever.
