Had a chance to be at clinical - it wasn't quite what I was expecting.

I expected that my preceptor would be responsible for educational pieces. According to her it's done by someone else. What she does is stay in her office and wait for students to come complaining of various things - stomach aches, headaches, sprained ankles, head bonks, etc...

I also thought that she would keep stats on people in the school - that is kinda right in that she tells those who have mono, strep, confirmed flu, etc.... but doesn't actually keep tally in her own file of numbers so when I asked what the stats were she had no idea. I only have stats for the county and that encompasses multiple cities so you can't differentiate what risks the people in the school to kids in other counties or state/USA. The reason why I bring all this up is that I'm supposed to ID a population in the school that are at risk (for whatever reason) because I have to do an education piece to these ppl as well as write a paper about it all.

Now I have to talk to my professor and figure it all out.

  1. That's so strange she doesn't keep records of any of that. It seems like it would be a prudent thing to do, even if she isn't required to do so for the state or school or anything. Well, I hope you get it all sorted out and I pray your semester goes by smoothly and quickly!
