Week’s Itinerary = Ophthalmology Exam 1, Clinical Pathology Exam 1, and Anesthesiology Quiz 4 & Protocol Paper due
For real???? Lord, you are such a magnificent God! You saw my struggle with this crazy workload this week. You saw my desperate need for help, and you greatly supplied it! Thank you Lord for taking good care of me. I love you so much! So yep, we got a Snow Day when I desperately needed it before my Ophthalmology exam on Friday. Here are the 6 things we all did this week:
1)We had an online Ophthalmology quiz due on Monday, and it was a bit challenging to be honest with you. It was take home, and you could discuss it among your classmates. I am just not a fan where multiple choice questions have multiple correct answers. If you thought an answer was right and got it wrong, it deducts an answer you had correctly chosen. It gets thought-provoking when a question is formatted like this. I managed to do well though plus it helps prepare you!
2)Also on Monday was our Clinical Pathology Exam 1. It was very long with a mixture of multiple choice, short answer, and analyzing test results from different species. After taking it, I felt like I did the best I could, but my efforts were unfortunately not reflected on the grade. When this happens, it is due to the fact that I second guessed myself with many of the questions, or I did not have enough time to fully immerse myself in the material. The ladder has been a normal occurrence for me with this very fast-pace schedule in vet school. Two more tests to go! I can rebound from this Lord!!
3&4)2 Assignments had to be postponed due to the well deserved Snow Day. The last Anesthesia quiz was postponed to Friday, and it involved the Pharmacology section. You really have to practice differentiating between proper drugs for different species and see what are some detrimental side-effects of each drug to do well on this next quiz. The Bone/Muscle Pre-test is postponed until Monday. This is what the professor said the the format will be like:
The pre-test will be only 5 case based questions that are short answer, hand written (not on elc new like usual). There will be visuals and the client’s history. With some of the cases, she will sometimes ask us to explain the issue so that an owner will understand (don’t use big words to explain in this instance). Hope this helps!
5)The last thing I had to conquer was the Ophthalmology (make sure you know how to spell this word 🙂 ). It consisted on multiple choice and short answer, and it was challenging for me. Make sure to look over the Lab Cases because some were reuse in the exam. With the cases though, if you get one question wrong, it will ultimately affect the other answers regarding the same case. Tests like these frustrate and frighten me (but that’s just me). A classmate told me the experience of taking the exam was fun for her. Update: Did well! (JESUS!!)
6) Remember to turn in your protocol paper for Anesthesia. I highly recommend being in a big group and discuss each case after everyone completed their assigned case. Also, the Lab final for Anesthesia was very much like the protocol paper.
We get to start surgery next week!!! I am so excited, and we have our piglets now. I am already attached!
