This semester has been going by fast. I guess time flies when you're having fun eh? I can definitely say that I have loved being a third year. One of the perks of being a third year is that we get taken out for free dinners by many optical companies and insurance companies. I also have been enjoying studying for boards ( which is coming up in March). Here at SCO, the school is real understanding and we get ample of time to study. I usually have 3 full days (during the school week) to study for boards. Also we have a daily review session put on by different doctors. This is definitely an advantage at being here at SCO!!
Also the SCO Lions club and SVOSH groups put on a fundraiser to sell Riverking Hockey Tickets (a CHL junior hockey team here). Our goal was to sell 200 tickets and we actually sold 215- YEAH! It was such a fun event. The Riverkings really made SCO feel special. They had a special broom ball event for us during intermission and they did a video shoot of the Eye Center which they also showed during intermission on the "big screen". It was so fun to see so many students, doctors, faculty and staff there.
Also us 3rd years are very privileged to have a "Laser Workshop" this coming Saturday. We are very excited to be a part of this special event put on by some fantastic doctors and faculty. We actually get to use these different lasers(such as LASIK, PRK, SLT, YAG, and Argon) on pig eyes. Its going to be a "blast"...
That's it for now but I will keep you informed and updated.
