I have SO much to blog about! Wednesday night we got back from our week long trip to Utah. It was wonderful. Before I write about that, let's backtrack a little.
It's done. He did it. Scott took his boards! As I mentioned in this previous post, Scott took two different sets of boards. First he took USMLE (United States Medical Licensing Exam) then a week later he took COMLEX (Comprehensive Osteopathic Medical Licensing Examination). It was a stressful few weeks leading up to the tests, but well worth it in the long run! Each test was about 8 hours long and the security at the testing center was pretty strict. We took a drive to the testing center a few days beforehand so Scott had a feel for the drive from our new place. We won't get his scores back for a month or two I guess, but I think his studying will have paid off.
Yesterday Scott had orientation at the hospital where he will be rotating through the next year. When I asked him how it went he made it pretty clear that it was super not fun. That's fair. Orientation is hardly ever a fun thing. He did get his ID badge and parking pass along with a new copy of his schedule. His first rotation starts Monday and his last one ends on June 9, 2013. He does have one week off somewhere in there, but I think it will be pretty nonstop for the most part. In any case, this is the last weekend where neither of us have anything required of us. It's going to be full of nothing but awesomeness!
