Hello! I just finished all courses up to 603... will be starting clinicals in September! Just lined up two preceptors (one is just for additional hours). My primary preceptor is AMAZING... I couldn't be more excited to start clinicals with her!
In case anyone doesn't know yet, they changed the line-up of the courses for clinicals. We'll be doing young adults first (18-60), and then pediatrics & OB/Gyn, and then geriatrics. This is definitely to our benefit, since before it was pediatrics & gynecology.
I know that while many of you are still in the core courses and feeling frustrated, there is a light at the end of the tunnel. There are hiccups along the way. It gets better. If you have the chance to go on campus for a course, you'll meet a lot of the instructors, clinical coordinator, and many other students. It definitely changed my experience with SJCME, even in the online courses. It's nice to put a face to the people that you're submitting your assignments to. Hang in there!
