Season’s Greetings to All..
After six finals in seven days, the fall semester has finally come to an end, and I can finally relax and breathe for a few weeks until the spring semester starts. It has been a very long semester, but I battled through. The studying for long hours and practicing technique for long hours has paid off.
Up next in the spring are Anterior and Posterior Segment, Vision Therapy, Contact Lenses, Theory & Methods IV, Ocular Pharmacology, and Clinical Internship. After talking to the third year students, this semester will by far be the most challenging as a student here at SCO. Not to mention we have the added pressure of passing pre-clinic checkouts toward the end of the semester which then deems us ready to see patients all by ourselves.
For now, I can honestly say that I am getting more and more confident with my abilities and technique in the exam room, but for now…. I will worry about that come January 5th, when the new semester starts. Until then, I am relaxing and enjoying the break. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!
Until next time, Later~
