A study that surveyed final year Chinese medicine students in Australia about their perception of preparedness for clinical practice concluded that they are somewhat adequately or adequately prepared for various aspects of clinical practice. (Moore et al. 2010). A follow up survey of graduates within 12 months found that there is greater desire for clinical experience, the need for support in establishing and maintaining business and interpersonal skills as well as interest in mentoring (Moore A, O’Brien K, 2012).
From my rapport with Chinese medicine practitioners around the country, I know that a significant number experience a level of isolation, disconnectedness and a lack of community or cohesion. This results in low confidence level, fragmented clinical practice and a high attrition rate.
Participating in this program will help you to generate momentum in getting patients onto your treatment table. It doesn’t matter if you are at the beginning of your Chinese medicine practice journey or have been in practice for a few years. It also doesn’t matter if you are a solo practitioner or working in a multi-modality clinic.
What matters is that you are finding yourself a little bit stuck, or have run out of inspiration, struggling to get patients through the door or simply need to reconnect with our outstanding industry.
Your attention will be required over the 12 weeks period. Rome wasn’t built in a day but to use the momentum, we must create a certain urgency. From Zero to 100 in 12 weeks is jam packed and dynamically paced. It’s not just delivering awesome content but also requires your full engagement and interaction.
