St. Pete Run Fest and the End of Trimester Nine

While everyone in basic and clinical sciences is studying for finals, I am looking around asking, “Where did the time go?” I almost can’t believe Trimester Nine is up. In another week I will be done with Clinical Internship II and will be moving into my final trimester at NUHS.

Thanksgiving in New Jersey

We got the day off for Thanksgiving as well as the day after so I went home to New Jersey for Thanksgiving break to see my friends and family. In addition to those two days, I requested off the day before and the Monday after the weekend to book cheaper flights and extend my stay at home. All my old friends were home for the holiday as well so I was able to catch up with them and go to some of our old hangout spots in town. I also drove up to North Jersey to see more of my family after Thanksgiving, which was also very nice. Ever since I started the program, I haven’t had a chance to fly home for Thanksgiving, so being able to spend it with family was long overdue. My girlfriend also flew home with me so I was happy she could spend it with me. It was a really nice weekend that we all enjoyed very much.

Turkey Bowl 2017

Every November on a brisk fall night in Florida, we celebrate a tradition that spans back to the beginning of NUHS Florida. Last year I won the ultimate prize at Turkey Bowl. I was the MVP and my team was 2016 Turkey Bowl Champions! Some of you might be asking, “What is Turkey Bowl?” Unfortunately you need to be there to understand, but I will briefly describe some of the things that go on at Turkey Bowl.

Part IV Boards

The time has finally come. I took Part IV of the NBCE chiropractic licensure exam this past weekend. One of the biggest draws of coming to NUHS Florida besides the evidence-based curriculum and beautiful weather was the reputation NUHS has on the board exams. Over the past 4 years, 90% of NUHS graduates received licensure within 6 months of graduation.

Rowdies Playoffs and a Chance to Regroup

It is the conclusion of week 8, which means I am over halfway done with Clinical Internship 2 also known as Trimester 9. This week hit me hard emotionally. I realized I am nearing the end of graduate school, my last Chirogames will be this weekend, and I may be moving out of Florida in just under 6 months.

My Friend's Wedding and Boards

This past weekend, I attended my friend’s wedding and took two board exams. When I first arrived at NUHS I became friends with some of the students in the upper trimesters who ended up becoming my closest friends in Florida. We have had a lot of good times together in school, at the beach, at the breweries, and in our apartments. We talked about school, boards, licensure, why we were at NUHS, and what we wanted to do when we graduated. Our friendships grew stronger and we made many memories throughout these last few years.

The Tri Mixer Fall 2017

We have a triannual event at NUHS as sort of a welcoming party for the new students as well as a chance to mingle with our fellow doctors-in-training. I remember my first tri mixer like it was yesterday. It was at that tri mixer I met some of my best friends from NUHS.
