Students can follow these steps for a head start before starting a chiropractic practice and learn the ropes from an experienced practitioner…
A recent chiropractic graduate says abandon your preconceived notions of what your practice or dream job may look like, and work on these five skills and strategies to have a leg up when you leave school.
There are several things you can work on while still in school to hit the ground running when you become a practicing chiropractor. The type of student you are will be the type of doctor you are, so here are three tips to develop characteristics and an attitude that will benefit you in the field.
Congratulations, doctor. You have passed your boards, opened your office, and are finally fulfilling your passion to help the public stay healthier through chiropractic care. But first, a word of warning: Passion can become its own entrapment. It helps if we listen to our family or close friends. Often, they will let us know when we need to be protected from our own wrong choices.
Disruptions in your schedule can be difficult to deal with. Learn now to deal with the unscheduled walk-in, canceled or changed appointments, habitual no-show or changed appointments, chronic lateness, emergency appointments, and challenging schedules. When a patient cancels their appointment or changes to another time, all effort should be made to meet the need for care. These missed or rescheduled appointments should be recorded in their personal file. Patient response to care can be hindered if the treatment plan is not followed.
