This is Takao's blog. I am studying Athetic Training at University of South Florida. New entry comes out everyday(hopefully). Am I ever going to have the day when I have a good command of English just like native- speakers? Hope the day will come to me....
I stayed in my room all the day today doing nothing. Nothing means studying but without any concentration. What the hell I have been doing... I was supposed to prepare for an exam coming up on the day after tomorrow.
Anyway, I still have time to study. I should be ready for all three exams so that I can enjoy on the spring break without any reserve. I swear!
I am learning a lot at clinic. Today, I tried for the first time taking treatment notes which Mike is always making for each patient so that we can go over patient's changes in their conditions. Some get better so fast, but other recovers from injury very slowly. We have to find out what factors are preventing them from recovering fast and vice versa. By doing this, we can gain new experience about patient's injuries which we have never seen or never understood, and will be able to apply these experience to the future patients who are suffering from same symptoms. I guess, as my experience enlarges, I will be able to understand more about patient’s detailed conditions. I hope that day comes to me soon!!
At the same time, however, working at clinic involved some boring stuff such as laundry, cleaning and bunch of paper works, and sometimes we have hard time to communicate with patients because of their unusual personalities. And I know studying from books or other sources are definitely important to get the knowledge. But spending much time at practical place which sometimes seems to be kind of waste of time are also really important to be a great clinician.
I will study hard to get used to taking SOAP notes and treatment note as well so I can help Mike without other's helps! I know it's gonna take a while.... Keep doing!!
OK I will back to work. See ya!
Japanese ARAU to wash something.
you can use when saying "I am washing my hands, so wait a sec.. " WATASHI HA(I am) TE(hands) WO ARATTE IMASU.
