My name is Addison Ozakyol and I am currently in my sixth trimester in the Doctor of Chiropractic Program at NUHS – Florida. I hope to bring useful content to this blog and give readers a good idea of what life is like here at NUHS – Florida.

November Already?!

This year has flown by at an insane rate! This trimester especially has gone by so fast I’m shocked that I am not falling behind, but am somehow managing to stay ahead of the assignments and exams that have been given, which has given me a little more time for fun the last couple of weeks.

Sports Council Miami

This weekend was absolutely amazing! I was able to head down to Miami, Fl to attend the American Chiropractic Association Sports Council (ACASC) Annual Symposium. This is a great conference that brings the best and brightest sports chiropractic minds together for a weekend full of quality education and great networking opportunities. This was my second year attending and it was my favorite symposium of the year!

Bye-Bye Week 5!

The fall trimester is already 1/3 over, and it is seriously flying by! Hard to imagine that in 10 short weeks I’ll be moving on to clinic and starting to see patients. I’m glad the trimester is going by quickly, because I can’t wait!

A Super Fun Weekend!

This weekend has been a very fun one! It all started with our Tri-Mixer on Friday night. At the start of every trimester we have a mixer in which all the students from the school meet up at a local venue and get to enjoy food, drinks, and camaraderie away from campus and our studies. This is always a fun event; it gives us upper tri students a chance to get to know the new Tri-1s, but is also a chance for everyone to go out together–something that doesn’t happen very often during all of our studies.

Summer Break 2019

As I get started into my 7th trimester I wanted to give you all a quick update on a very fun and productive summer break. To start things off, I was able to go home for a couple days. I spent just under a week back in Albuquerque, New Mexico to visit my family and gorge myself on spectacular New Mexican food, green chile, and try a new craft brewery near my house. I had a great visit, but it was too short. I can’t wait to go home for a nice long winter break in a couple of months!

Wrapping up Tri 6

We’re moving into the last couple weeks of the trimester and the studying hours are piling up. I am certainly ready for the Tri to end, as it’s my last one with this high of a credit load. This trimester I took about 33 credit hours (if you include the acupuncture elective course) and the credit hour workload steadily gets lower from here until graduation. I am also pleased to say that I passed the acupuncture course! Now all I have left to do is pass the national board exam in September, and I will be a licensed chiropractic acupuncturist.

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.
