Where Did Tri 9 Go???

I’m not sure if all you readers feel the same, but with COVID, schedule changes, and the business of clinic life, time has certainly flown by during this summer trimester. I cannot believe that it is already week 14 of my 9th trimester. With only one more trimester to go, I can safely say I am very excited to graduate and move on to the next steps, but it will be bittersweet transitioning my patients to the next group of interns.

Clinic and Florida Rainy Season

Our first two weeks back to in-person clinic were hectic to say the least. Integrating all the interns from both clinics and our lab classes into one building while socially distancing was a challenge, but we made it work. We rotated on and off of early mornings and late evenings to make sure all of our patients had the ability to be seen with the fewest number of people in the clinic at a time. We were given specific areas where we were able to spend our time between patient visits and I was lucky enough to secure a spot in one of our acupuncture rooms and got to enjoy a little sunlight or storm watching between appointments.

Clinic is OPEN, Friend Visit and a Surprise

The day has finally come, we are opening our clinic back up! The last two weeks have been fairly busy wrapping up some of the preparations for returning to in-person clinic, but we made it. For right now, all first patient encounters – be they new patients or returning patients for their re-evaluation visits–have been taking place via telehealth, so that we can limit the amount of time needed to re-establish our patients as well as reduce the number of people coming in and out of clinic.

Family and Fossils

After taking my Part 2 chiropractic board exam two weeks ago, I was able to score a flight home for a nice visit with the family. Since COVID-19 hit during the end of my last trimester, I was unable to go home for break as I had wanted and was due for a visit home. With regulations lifting slightly, and enough time upon my return to self-quarantine before seeing patients, I didn’t hesitate to hurry home!

Mocks and Part II Boards

The last two weeks since my last post have been busy to say the least! To start off, we finally had our first mock patient encounters making use of the telehealth software. We were tasked with tracking down our own mock patients, but luckily my brother was able to help me out and play the role of a patient with neck pain.

Spring 2020-Week 4

As we move into finishing the first month of my 9th trimester, things are slowly but surely getting back to normal. Here in Florida, the beaches and businesses are beginning to open back up, and my girlfriend and I have been able to get out of the house a little more to enjoy Pinellas a little more than we have been as of late.

The Quarantine Haircut

We are about four weeks into the stay at home order due to the coronavirus, and things are going okay. My professors and clinician have been able to polish and standardize their online requirements, which has removed a lot of the workload and stress of completing the online program. Beforehand, I was working on my computer for six to eight hours a day on various research articles, discussion boards, and quizzes, but now it is down to about four hours a day. It has become a much more manageable load that gives me more time to devote to some other things.
