Dare I say the “B” word…Boards!

May 17, 2009 —

Seems like second year students are hibernating in the library sitting in a deep trance with their face stuck in their COMLEX or First Aid USMLE books.

What are those books anyway? Oh dear, so soon? Yes, it is board studying season! So what is everybody’s technique in preparing to study for their national board exam? For me, it’s dividing up the pages of the First Aid book to the days remaining until the boards. We’ll see how that goes! Post your comments below if you have suggestions for us.


Tea Nguyen is a dual degree D.P.M./M.P.H. student at DMU. She was born in Utah but raised in California and left the great state to be at one of the best podiatry school in the country.

She has aspirations in international medical service trips and hopes to hit several continents during this lifetime. Traveling is also on the top of her to-do list and she often reminisces about her prior travels to Italy, France and Greece. She also enjoys eating adventures with her boyfriend Paul and is a major food-snacker. It is not uncommon to find her lapsed in a food coma in the middle of her studies.
