  • Preparing for the PANCE

    Every day was Groundhog Day. Well, to be fair it was early January but, like the 1993 Bill Murray comedy, I felt like I was stuck in a time loop.

I guess it was because of the lull, no case studies to do, clinical hours completed for the semester, and final grade deemed passing, that I had the time to contemplate a life after school. This month, as my classes resume ...

  • Facing the Boards

    I really felt prepared. I had done a review course by a company that claims a pass rate of 99%.

  • In Print or Online? You Choose.

    Last week, Newsweek published its final print issue. As a magazine enthusiast (I subscribe to many, I've studied them, and I work for one), I was saddened to hear the news. I remember a time when finding one of my favorite magazines in the mail meant I would be sitting on the couch for the rest of the night to read it from cover to ...
