“Survey Results and Post-Doctoral Education”
I have reviewed the results of the clinical competency survey given last week and the results speak volumes. I am proud to say that those doctors who have taken the post-doctoral courses we offer online scored in the range of 14-19 out of 20 and those who did not scored in the range of 6-11 out of 20. Statistics do not lie, they have no emotions and they do not care about reasons. If you haven’t taken the post-doctoral courses, take the test and if your score is below a 15, then you must take the courses. It’s more than the lawyers, it’s about your patients and they deserve the very best doctor they can go to.
The days of exam, x-ray and adjust are here forever, but long over. You must understand how to triage your patients, where to send them and how to understand the results. You must understand accident issues if you want to be considered a better choice than the neurosurgeon or orthopedic surgeon in the eyes of the lawyers for referrals. It is not by accident (no pun intended) that certain doctors get more referrals than others. It is because they have the knowledge and credentials. Sound familiar?
My goal is to create an army of the best of the best through clinical excellence. When I present my courses nationwide, I proudly say that the doctors who have gone through the Academy of Chiropractic are the best. I am very proud of that.
