A new oral and maxillofacial radiology program has just been announced at Stony Brook University School of Dental Medicine. The program will begin July 1st, 2017. What does this mean? Typically this means that the school sees an increased demand for the field. If my personal experience hasn’t been convincing enough… this is basically a good sign.… Continue reading New OMR Program
In the next couple of weeks I have a head and neck anatomy exam coming up. I have to admit, I am a bit nervous about it. As always I am amazed by the number of different structures that are in the body. I am doubly impressed by how many structures are in the head… Continue reading Oh Anatomy…
Done with my statistics class, now just a few more exams and I am done with this semester. Very excited about next semester. We will be starting to write reports and actually being involved in the field. Currently I am learning a ton of stuff and making the best of it. Soon I will be… Continue reading Almost There
It has been a stressful couple of weeks, but I’m finally past the midterms. Finals will be here sooner than later since there isn’t that much of the semester left. This weekend will be strictly relaxation (with some casual material review of course). The way I feel about it right now, I’m a couple of… Continue reading Past Midterms
Classes are quickly starting to build up over each other. The momentum of the semester is gaining, and as any physicist would tell you, the momentum is accelerating. Multiply that out and you have Force, which is measured in Newtons. Anyway, the semester is essentially jumping from one class to the next and all of… Continue reading Gaining Traction
This semester is quickly starting to gain traction. Between all of these classes I have a feeling I will start pulling out my own hair. That being said, I am truly enjoying the residency and the learning experience. Honestly, there is so much involvement in radiology I am surprised that the dental model hasn’t been… Continue reading Pathology, Physics, Biostatistics and What?… There’s more?
One program at UMDNJ has already started and over the next year, one at UCLA and the third at the University of Washington will open up. This bodes very well for the profession as a whole. It means demand is increasing and schools are becoming interested in providing coursework. In addition, I heard that Baylor… Continue reading Three New OMFR Programs
As I’m ending my first small summer semester I am coming to the realization that I will soon have a physics exam. I have to say, not at all looking forward to it. This is the one class that is truly tough this semester. Fall semester is coming up and that is going to be… Continue reading Physics. Why oh why?
Part of my coursework is a class that discusses research methodology. Essentially, it is the art of writing research papers and conducting research. I have learned how to apply for grants, come up with a thesis and design a study. Interesting, even if ultimately research will not be my area of interest. At least I… Continue reading Learning to Write
So far so good. Some hiccups here and there. I’m still trying to get used to being back in school. I also find it is interesting to be faculty for predoctoral students. In any case, it has been a light schedule so far, being a summer semester. Last week of August, however, I start Fall… Continue reading A Few Weeks In
