I have only one more week as an extern at Toyo’s Clinic and it’s bittersweet. I’m glad to inch closer to graduation but I will certainly miss coming to Toyos every day. It has been such a great experience to come to “work” at a clinic with great people, providing excellent care.
My next externship rotation is at SCO. I will be at The Eye Center until Christmas. I am looking forward to seeing some of my classmates again and working with the Doctors at our clinic. It will be difficult to go back to school but there are no classes, I’ll be in the clinic full time Monday through Friday.
Also, I need to start preparing for Part II and Part III of National Boards, both are coming up this fall! Another thing on my mind lately is deciding if I want to complete a residency program after graduation. As of now residency for O.D.’s is optional, but with Board Certification being implemented it seems like a smart choice. So I will keep you updated on my decision making as it relates to applying for residency!
If you are a student thinking about Optometry as a career, please call or email our school administrators. They can provide you with my contact information or possibly get you in touch with a current student from your home state or alma mater. We would be happy to discuss optometry or SCO with you.
