Starting a practice can seem like a daunting task, especially for someone without any business experience or skills. Most of you didn’t get into your profession to be a business person, you just wanted to help people. Now that you’re close to graduating or already graduated, you’re faced with the task of either getting a job, residency, or working for yourself (starting your own gig). Working for yourself, starting your own practice, can be intimidating, but the freedom and opportunity that it brings offer its own rewards. In this hour with Dan Clements we dispel the myth that starting a practice has to be a hard thing.
Dan Clements knows practice building. Together with his wife Tara Gignac, a Naturopathic Physician, they have built a successful practice in Ontario, Canada. They have also co-authored a couple of books on starting a successful practice including The Practitioner’s Journey, the required reading for our business class at Bastyr. Dan has some great insights on what it takes to start and build a successful practice.
In this hour we dive into starting a practice, tangible steps to take to get your practice off the ground, social media, buying a practice and much more.
