Recently we have had a few snow days at SCO! I grew up in west Tennessee and have to say this is the most I snow I remember getting down here in a long time. The days off could not have come at a better time since it’s giving me more opportunities to study for Part I of National Boards, coming up in about a month now. That’s’ pretty much all this semester is about for 3rd years, just studying as much as you can without going crazy until mid-March. In Clinic, I just began my Pediatrics rotation. I am very lucky and had the most well behaved 5 year old patient. I’m sure to have an interesting story by the end of this rotation! It’s hard to believe, but this weekend we will be eligible to register online for Part III of National boards! We will be the first class to take Part III (Clinical Skills Examination) in the new North Carolina based testing facility. It will be offered from September through around April next year so it’s important for me to choose when I would like to take the exam before I register, a little bit stressful to be deciding right now! I’ll keep you posted!
