It's now mid-October, and we are just about halfway through the semester. Tests are flying left, right, and all around, but I'm definitely maintaining my sanity. I still find myself studying more Anatomy and Neuroanatomy than any other class, but I would have to say out of all of my classes, Theory & Methods is by far the most enjoyable. Even though we are just first year students, we are learning things that we will be using throughout the rest of our careers. It is so surprising that we are already becoming skilled at applying things that we learn in class to real life situations. To actually grasp that a patient walking in with a head tilt could be a correlation between a cranial nerve palsy, and/or extra ocular muscle dysfunction is so amazing. I knew before that SCO had an outstanding curriculum, but to actually learn these applicable intricacies so soon in our education is blowing my mind.
We also received our white coats a few weeks ago, and they look very impressive. It was a must that I add a little extra flair to mine though, by adding my Georgia Bulldog and Cleveland Browns pins (Smiling Hard)!! We get to wear them in our Theory & Methods lab. I can’t wait for the day that I’m wearing my white coat on a daily basis. Well, that’s about it for now. Back to studying (Anatomy)….
Until Next Time… Later~
