My First Clinical Affiliation

I have received my first clinical affiliation assignment. I will be spending six weeks at Logan Regional Hospital working in orthopedics. I am excited and nervous to start working with real patients. It starts in May so I have a while to prepare. While we are there we are fortunate that Char has family that we can stay with instead of getting two apartments. One here and one there.

All together the program has five clinical affiliations. I think it is great because we have lots of patient interaction through out the program.

In the future I could go anywhere in the nation or Hong Kong. Hopefully, we can stay in the mountain west area. Although, I just found out about a scholarship of $14,000 given to students that agree to work for a company in the east for at least three years after graduation. I am considering that.
