Week’s Itinerary: Radiology Quiz #1 and Surgery Quiz #1
During a typical new semester, I am already feeling behind on my class work after two days.
But not this time when I felt very organized and efficient during the first week. I was able to look at the lecture notes before hearing the professor teach, and I am soaking up new information. I’m not sure how long this will last but I like it.
Demand peaked on Wednesday when we had two quizzes. The first radiology quiz for the semester was not difficult at all. It was based on our first three lectures and on the lab assignment we worked on as teams (we were allowed to choose our own groups). We were shown 10 X-rays we had already seen and discussed during lab and asked multiple-choice questions about them. I got an A, which is a fantastic way to begin a new school year. Here’ a goofy cartoon:
The second quiz for the week was for surgery. This turned out to not to be hard, even though we weren’t entirely sure what the first quiz of the semester would cover. The professor wanted us to review old information related to surgeries we performed on piglets last spring semester. So we were asked about proper hygiene and etiquette techniques, when to change our anesthetic equipment, what is wrong with a surgical site projected on screen, and so forth. We wrote short answers individually and then answered the questions again with our group members. The professor surprised us by saying that she would use higher of the two. This an unexpected bonus was a treasure to my eyes.
I promise you the weeks will get more exciting as the semester continues. Next weekend, after my first surgery and large animal digestive exam, I will be going with a friend to “DragonCon” in Downtown Atlanta. If you don’t already know, this is a conference that celebrates the fantasy worlds of video games, sci-fi movies, and anime. Stay tuned for pictures.
