I haven't written about school in a while, and it has been a little easier this semester since I'm not taking an additional course. That being said, I have been extremely busy with life. The new house, and rent house have been a constant source of projects.
I finally finished all of my comp requirements for graduation today. I got my trauma cervical spine and trauma upper extremity today. I still have to do a final comp on a spine, and I'll be happy to leave clinicals with a B. I'll explain a little but more. I don't get to pick put what my final comps are, that is the job of the adviser. Happy,happy,joy,joy, and I got a knee. The front to back x-ray is easy, but the lateral x-ray is akin to cleaning for an OCD schizophrenic. The slightest rotation and it doesn't pass.
I did two x-rays and both failed, and I was put into remedial classes. That means that I have to do two good x-rays, then I can proceed to try again. Well, it took me about 6 weight bearing knees to get the two good laterals. Finally, I was ready, and I get an overweight lady with absolutely no bony landmarks in the knee area. So, I progress to skills class that means I have to get 3 signatures from the rad techs, and then 3 signatures from the advisers (when they show up for final comps). If I blow the next two images, I can get washed out of the entire program.
So, I will happily graduate with a B in clinicals, and still graduate with high honors (GPA < 3.625).
