It's officially been over a month since I've started fall semester of third year, and I've only had one test! It's crazy seeing the first and second years studying so much and not having to myself. With so much clinic, our class schedule is very minimal so test come far and few between.
Clinic has been going well. I had adult primary care clinic yesterday and saw three patients. Two were younger patients and one was a 71-year-old woman. The first younger patient turned out to have an accommodation disorder so it was a great feeling being able to prescribe her a pair of glasses to help increase her studying ability. The women had a choriodal nevus and the last patient of the day turned out to need a much higher prescription than she was currently wearing. It's great to have such a variety of patients in the clinic. It helps keep things challenging, and plus, you never get bored!
We also had our annual "Dining in the Dark" Lion's Club meeting the week. The officers blindfolded all the members and we ate dinner trying to experience what it would be like to eat a simple meal if we were blind. It was a really cool experience and it made me have a new appreciation for those with sight impairments.
Well I guess that's about it for now. We have a Shipwrecked themed party tonight for the social fraternity Omega Delta at SCO. I've got to get started on my costume. Until next time!
