Hello friends! Quite a lot has happened this past week… here are some highlights:
On Tuesday, I saw my first standardized patient and it really wasn’t as scary as I thought it would be. This was my first time in the “provider” role… crazy right?? We basically walked in, got the chief complaint & history, and performed a cardiac/lung exam. These encounters are actually recorded so we can look back and evaluate ourselves and each other- that should be an interesting sight.

Thursday was a special day- the official ribbon cutting of our new building with lots of important people in attendance. One cool thing I learned was that our building (the Leon Levine Hall of Medical Sciences) was actually named after the same Mr. Levine that is all over Charlotte (children’s hospital, museum, etc). I was pretty excited when I connected the dots. With his foundation’s help, we were able to get this amazing new building and all the high-tech stuff to go along with it.
Governor Pat McCrory even came! Here he is hanging out with some PA students.

This past weekend, I packed my bags and headed back to CLT. We headed to food truck Friday & finally got to try the yummy grilled cheeses at Papi Queso. I had the caprese and it was pretty much the bomb. My Saturday was filled with studying/errands (how exciting) but that night we tried out Red Ginger, a new Japanese restaurant in uptown and the food was pretty amazing. I had ran by it a few times and then a Groupon came out so of course Ryan got one. I could seriously eat sushi every day, and their’s didn’t disappoint. Nice decor, good music, and they even have Teppanyaki tables (we didn’t know until we got in there but definitely next time).
I was so very excited to go to the Panthers/Giants game on Sunday. If there was a perfect day for football, this was it.

Around here it’s definitely starting to feel like fall… and only 23 days until fall break!! One test & lab practical down and one more history & physical exam to finish out the week. School is pretty much a full-time job and even though it’s challenging and stressful at times, we all still have a blast (shoutout to class of 2015!). Lately we’ve been studying the kidneys and our physiology professor showed us this cute cartoon- it’s only appropriate.
