It’s been a long while since I last wrote anything here, mostly because I was absorbed by that vortex of monomania known as THE BOARDS, so I will tell you all about the things I have been up to since my last update in April.
Back in March when I left my positions as a National SOMA Leader, I mentioned that I had some other interesting projects lined up. Specifically, I ran for the First Vice President of the Rowan University Student Government, and was elected by my fellow students to serve in this position. By being elected to this office, I am now a member of the Council of Osteopathic Student Government Presidents, and will be serving again on the New Jersey delegation to the American Osteopathic Association’s House of Delegates in July! I am looking forward enormously to the opportunity to represent my fellow students at this exciting event for the second time in my medical school career.
I finally took my exhausting board exams in early June, and received my passing scores in just the last couple of days, which was enormously exciting! During my last week before beginning third-year, I spent several days in Rome and the Amalfi Coast of Italy! This was a huge amount of fun, and a great way to unwind after the several months of total dedication to prepping for the medical examination apocalypse that is Part One.
