Making the leap from student to practitioner brings with it many challenges, not least of these is understanding the types of employment opportunities that may be offered to recent graduates. Recognising the need to support the transition of recent graduates into practice, Chiropractic Australia has developed The Early Practitioners’ Network; a supportive network of peers to foster links between those just starting out in Chiropractic and those with years of experience in the field.
Kicking off with a webinar that was held on 25th March 2021 facilitated by Chiropractic Australia’s Peter Werth, John Campigli and Jessica Bravo, this session focussed on the business and legal issues faced in the early period of chiropractic careers; from first associateship positions, to moving into a partnership or commencing your own practice. Given the myriad business and legal issues that you will potentially need to address as you start on your path into professional Chiropractic, this webinar was developed to help you navigate the way and make your move into clinical practice as smooth as possible.
As part of our broader program of Early Career Practitioner Network events, the Business & Legal webinar was just the first of many to come and we are excited to be announcing a series of new webinars – focusing on the issues encountered by those just beginning their careers in Chiropractic – as well facilitating informal, inter-professional mentorship opportunities in the very near future; stay tuned.
