Today is the day I will ring, or really my daughter will ring for me, the Clinic Bell!! What does this mean? It signifies the completion of clinic requirements. When an intern is finished with all requirements for clinic they or a friend/patient/family member rings “The Bell.” Everyone in the building hears the bell and comes forth to cheer the intern that is leaving. It’s a very big moment for an intern. But it will also be bittersweet.
I’ve spent a lot of time here…worked hard for my patients and, worked hard to become as proficient as possible in adjusting vertebral subluxations.
Truth be told I will miss my patients, fellow interns, and case doctors. I will miss all of Sherman and wonder what it will be like not to see the familiar faces all around campus. We have, after all, spent so much time together.
To quote Superman, it’s been “Swell!” and I think I will find a way not to be gone for too long… fortunately, Lyceum is coming in May!
So, the withdrawal will be not quite so painful. :) Adios! And Adio! :)
