Class of 2012

So far, so good, with the new class of 2nd year students. We've had orientation all week. The clinics, docs, and staff are much more welcoming to this class than the inaugural class last year. Last year everything was new and the clinics were under stress from several other major, simultaneous changes at the health center, so there were reasons for their apprehension. Now, after a year of this program, the culture of the health center is starting to include the medical students as part of the family. I think we still have a long way to go, but we're moving in the right direction.

  1. Schools are so different, the one I went to didn't even start clinical work until late spring of my 2nd year, and then it was just to practice writing H&P's. 3rd year was where the real patient stuff started.
