Once again, the Watertown CBOC will be hosting students from Lake Area in the nursing program. The nursing students will be rotating through over the next two months and will participate in lab draws and rooming patients for doctor visits. Please help us make them feel welcome as they gain valuable clinical skills. Also, we continue to host Internal Medicine Residents from Sioux Falls doing a rural health, ambulatory care rotation here in Watertown. This four week rotation provides excellent exposure of day-to-day operations in a primary care clinic and an opportunity for me to educate and be educated. Next month, we will also host a physician assistant resident as well. As a side note, I appreciated the opportunity to attend the Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Ceremony here in Watertown. A moving celebration that was well overdue. Congratulations from all of us at the clinic in Watertown.
