Katie, Colin, and I are in a rotation group together this semester. When our placements came out, I was excited to see that we are in a group together. All three of us are the uber nerds of our class. We are always finding new ways to study and keep everyone on top of the game. Other schools and classes are competitive and have people who are trying to be the best in their class. What is great about our class is that we all want to see each other succeed, so we help everyone out the best we can. Katie and I are called “mom” in our class because we look out for everyone to make sure they are keeping up with assignments, and are understanding concepts and techniques. Colin is always getting study groups together, and making everything a group effort. I believe having us three together is going to bring forth a new level of excellence. In clinical, of course we joke around with each other, but we also study together and go over difficult topics from class. During this week, Katie and I were reading over a practice BOC book. This week we were learning special test for the cervical and thoracic spine. Katie and I came up with a memorization tool to remember Allen’s test. It is up up and away with Tim Allen which stands for arm up head up and away, then Tim Allen plays buzz light year, so it was fitting. That could stand as a testament for how nerdy we are. Our class is always encouraging each other to achieve greater things, and that is what makes our rotation group and our class so special.
Below is a picture of our group. Just to prove how super awesome we are, we didn’t even plan to match that day. It just happened.
Not too much happened when I was clinically experiencing this week. It seemed our schedules were messed up a bit because one day our preceptor had 6 of us scheduled for just men’s basketball practice. With that being said, there were not too many opportunities to do much. I wrapped a support brace onto a player.
In class I made a model sarcomere that could actually move. My partner and I geeked out over us getting it to move. I put a video of that below as well. Hopefully, us geeking out will bring good grades on tomorrows test.
This week I got 17 attempts.
This is where I do my weekly clinical blog assignment. There is either a prompt I am responding to, or I just talk about something exciting I saw during the week.
