Attending continuing education seminars after graduation is something every chiropractor has in common. Our hours may vary slightly, and we may have more choices in some states than others. Nevertheless, we all have to average 12 hours per year, minimum, to keep our licenses active.
Continuing education is not just another challenge or hurdle in practice where you have to go and sit for 12 or more hours and be bored. You have the power and choices today to make these seminars exciting, re-vitalizing and energizing for your life and practice. Why does going to re-licensure seminars make you a better doctor? Here are some reasons that apply not only to doctors, but also to students:
Continuing education seminars keep you updated on the cutting-edge technology in chiropractic.
Seminars expose you to current political issues facing chiropractic.
You will learn new techniques, improve your skills and brush up on topics you might have forgotten.
Continuing education seminars give you something to brag about.
If you are pressed for time, get your education online.
For students, continuing education seminars give you a small taste of reality.
One last thing to you students: almost all the chiropractors walking around these conventions have knowledge about daily practice life. If you happen to strike up a conversation with one or two, you will be amazed at what they can teach you.
