The Christmas Update:

Christmas 2011:

first semester of my paramedic diploma finished and wrapped up.....made the Dean's list with a 89% average.

Particularly happy with my Patient Care Theory final exam grade of 95.3%..... Lets see what next semester brings in two short weeks time. Start my clinical placements Jan 9th in Newmarket...going to be awesome!

Finally wrapped up my 12 week advanced First aid course for the Canadian Ski patrol, and started patrolling on the slopes a couple of weeks back. Finished my on snow training last night so am now a fully qualified member of the CSPS... picking up some paid shifts over the holidays and generally trawling the slopes looking for business. Breaks, sprains, strains, major and minor concussions and blunt force traumas a speciality.

Been flying under a white cloud so far......lets see what the new year brings.

Teddy Trauma 101: Spinal Immobilization

So my first semester of paramedicine draws to a close....I'm getting pretty much straight A's across the board.

but with the final week of exams coming up only time will tell if I can keep my average up.

However i got my one big hurdle out the way Friday when I nailed my scenarios helped in part by my friends at school and Jonathon at home: When times are rough you gotta do what you have to to get through.

next up: Medical legal..... then Anatomy, physiology and pathophysiology.

heads down!!!!!
