Spring Semester 2015 started with a clinical mission trip to the Dominican Republic then there was Buffalo...

There was lots of classroom time - shown here in Advanced Procedures lecture with one of our favorite professors. (All of our professors are pretty much awesome! But Czajka is a fave!)
Here are a few more pics from our medical mission trip - we used pink shower curtain liners to divide exam rooms. Necessity is the mother of invention!

Then we made it to splinting and casting lab - a highlight of spring semester - lots of photo ops.

PA students don't have a match day. But we do have plenty of transitions.
Transitions are times of growth and change. We leave the familiar and go out into the unknown.
This semester was certainly all those things.In addition to our SWOB trip in January, we conducted a health fair for refugees back in Buffalo, raised $2700 for one of our favorite charities Wings Flights of Hope with a spaghetti dinner and silent auction, held our own PA Prom, learned how to start IV lines, draw blood and put on splints and casts.
All of these events were a huge success!
We haven't been told where our clinical sites are yet - still waiting for our matches.
What's next?So here's to the next transition - clinicals!
A big thank you to all who participated in our success this semester - our professors at Daemen College and my fellow PA16ers. Go team!
