The Last Bit of Pre-Finals Fun

It’s almost finals week! That means it’s just about time to hunker down in the corner of my couch reviewing everything from the last 12 weeks. But before that, the lack of exams and projects this week opened up a couple of opportunities to enjoy myself.

Happy July 4th!

I hope that everyone had a safe and happy 4th of July holiday! Mine was certainly a busy one. My mom was able to come out for a visit and spent most of the week here in Florida. To top it off, I ran a couple of races this week, which made for a challenge, but it was fun.

Week Eight Already?

Well, would you look at this, the trimester is already half over?! In what seems like a crazy blur, we are suddenly in week eight of my sixth trimester at NUHS. It’s hard for me to comprehend, considering I still have to check my schedule almost every day to see which rooms my classes are in. This trimester is definitely proving to be one of the quickest so far, which is exciting, because we’re getting that much closer to clinic!

Post Exam Week

I won’t lie, sometimes this program can be pretty challenging! This trimester, if you count the acupuncture elective course, I’m taking about 33 credit hours of courses since I am on the fast track. While I do my best to stay current or ahead on the material, every once in a while we have weeks where everything happens all at once--and that was last week.

Clubs Off to a Good Start

As we move into the fourth week of the trimester, we begin to have our first round of exams, so study time outside of class makes a quick increase. That being said, it also means that the clubs on campus are having their first meetings. During the summer term the clubs have all new E-board officers so it is interesting to see what the new club groups will bring to the table.

The Start of Tri 6

This last break was certainly a fun one! I spent just about two weeks back home in Albuquerque, New Mexico and my girlfriend was able to come visit for the first week of the vacation. This was her first time being to New Mexico, so we spent the week doing a whirlwind of touristy activities and eating all the best foods the state has to offer.

Trimester Wrap-up

Well here we are! We made it through (almost) yet another trimester! Tri 5 certainly had its challenges. With my acupuncture elective course I ended up completing about 33 credit hours this trimester. It was a whole lot of work, but I learned a ton of techniques and treatment protocols that I can one day apply to my practice.

Quoted at World Federation of Chiropractic

I had a pretty cool and unique opportunity that came to develop this last weekend. A few months ago, I applied for the annual International Federation of Sports Chiropractic (FICS) scholarship and was soon notified that I would not be receiving the award. Now fast forward to early March, and you could imagine my surprise when the president of FICS – Dr. Pete Garbutt, a chiropractor who practices in Australia – emailed me asking for my permission to quote my scholarship essay at the World Federation of Chiropractic (WFC) International Congress in Berlin, Germany!

Festival Fun!

This week had a slightly lighter study load than the previous couple of weeks, so I took some time to enjoy the festivities that Tampa Bay has to offer. Almost every weekend you can find an event celebrating art, music, beer, tacos, French fries, and so much more.

I Passed Part 1 Boards!!!

This past week was a wild one down here in Florida. We got our part 1 national board exam results back after a long six weeks of waiting...and I am super happy to report that I passed! I’m very relieved I passed it on the first attempt, and I am proud of my tri because the majority of us passed all together! It is nice to have the load of basic sciences off our shoulders and now be able to focus on the clinical courses full time.
