I'm currently completing my third-year midterms. Wait, didn't this semester just start? How are we at the midterm mark already?! Oh wait, I know why: assignments. We've all been so busy completing assignments that this semester is flying by (thank you weekly Post Encounter Probes (PEPs), Homeopathy case reports, Men's & Women's Health research paper, Radiology presentation, Health Psychology portfolio, etc).
So here we are, in midterm week, year three. You'd think that they'd be easy by now (third time's a charm, right?), but nope, they are still tricky and require lots of studying. Oh well, I really can't complain because there is only one more to go, this week, and then only one more midterm exam period to complete ever (February, 2013)!
Midterms, Year 3, Snapshot 1: On Monday, after our brutal Botanical Medicine exam, our student government treated students to gluten-free, dairy-free, oatmeal cookies for a nice moral boost. Super yum!
Midterms, Year 3, Snapshot 2: Physical Medicine studying last night, complete with chamomile tea! I learned a bunch of exercise-like to test to determine if the patient has nerve impingement or injury, ligament and tendon tears, facet joint pathologies, or nerve tumors (neuromas), to name a few. I learned a lot studying this material; it was actually---dare I say it---really fun to study Phys Med!
