Logan Tri 7 Students Receive Business Cards in Special Ceremony
June 12, 2013
When Logan students reach Trimester 7 and have successfully completed their competency board examinations, they become eligible to begin providing chiropractic care to students and student family members in the Logan Student Health Center. To mark this significant milestone, 58 new Trimester 7 students attended a special June 11 ceremony in the lobby of the William D. Purser, DC Center on the Logan campus where they formally received their Logan clinic business cards to mark the start of their practical clinical experience as interns in the Logan clinic system.
“This ceremony is truly a benchmark in our chiropractic education because it signifies that we are further along on our journey as chiropractic students and closer to becoming doctors of chiropractic,” said Anthony Aamodt of Rockford, Ill. “This event is important because it shows people that our hard work as chiropractic students has paid off and we are one our way to becoming doctors of chiropractic one day,” noted Adrienne Hagedorn of Tell City, Ind. “It’s also wonderful to see Logan faculty and staff support our achievement.”
“The Tri-7 card ceremony is really a milestone in our chiropractic education. It’s exciting to know that we can now really help patients,” added Sean Neary of Ballwin, Mo.
Ryan Herold of Grand Junction, Colo., whose father-in-law and brother-in-law both graduated from Logan, commented that “this event confirms our level of accomplishment in entering the student clinic. We’ve made it this far and we’re ready to move forward.”
At this Tri-7 Card ceremony, each student was recognized individually by Professor Muriel Périllat, MS, DC, Logan’s director of student health, and Associate Professor Ralph Barrale, DC, vice president of chiropractic affairs and postgraduate education, and awarded his or her business cards. Dr. Clay McDonald, Logan’s president, delivered congratulatory remarks. Ms. Linda Kenny, MA, director of Logan’s career development center, served as mistress of ceremonies.
