Schedule: Monday, Tuesday & Thursday 10am-10pm

How it went down~

My second Family Practice (FP) rotation and my second Urgent Care (UC) rotation :) I really enjoyed working 3 days out of the week! First half of the day was spent seeing patients in FP. At around 5/6pm, my preceptor and I would go across the street to see patients at UC. My preceptor was amazing - super chill and she was patient when I presented my findings, the assessment and plan for each encounter. This really challenged me because she would ask, “What do you want to give him?” and I would say, this, this and that. “Okay, that sounds good.” Man, did that feel good! All the providers at this clinic were extremely helpful, nice and they all did a great job in explaining things. Some of the doctors and the PAs are WesternU alumni - pretty cool!

Here are some of the topics I encountered during this month: Chronic processes like DM, HTN, CKD, Pulmonary diseases, performed many Well Woman Exams, Pap smears, Keloids injections, treated many Cough/Colds, repaired lacerations , etc.

Ego booster - I got a job offer on my last day! So grateful :)

Senior Seminar Exam

Each month we have two exams where we have to return to campus on a Friday and Monday. For this month’s SS exam, we were tested on Blood/Urology/Kidney Disorders. I used Quizlet, Pance Prep Pearls, and Rosh Review and asked my classmates how they studied. Glad to say, my efforts paid off! 

End of Rotation Exam

For this month, I actually relied on my clinical experience for the exam! It’s always tough to study for the Family Practice, Urgent Care and Internal Medicine EORs. There are just SO many topics - it’s like studying for the whole entire PANCE! What’s also helpful is the blueprint on PAEA. Happy to say, I passed, WOO!
