It seems not so long ago that I stepped into Room 3110 for my first lecture of chiropractic college.
I remember thinking, one trimester at a time, in order to keep myself from becoming overwhelmed from the idea of the long haul of the program. I remember seeing the students with white lab coats walking through the halls between classes and thinking they’ve been here a long time. I remember thinking, “It’s seem like it’s going to be a while before I get to wear a white lab coat.”
Well,, flash forward and I became one of those students, walking through the halls donning my white lab coat. this was trimester 5 of 10. Looking back, time in chiropractic college flew by. I felt that I’ve learned a lot and that things were starting to come together.
At the time, I still had a few basic science courses in my schedule, but the rest were geared toward adjusting and clinical practice. The anatomies and physiologies came together in pathologies and diagnostics. Also, I had the opportunity to learn from my hometown chiropractor. It was a great feeling to be able to relate things back to the real world.
Later on, I started preparing for board exams, then student clinic, then outpatient clinic. It was a great feeling know it was all coming together.
