After Hours Clinic Visit Program 

Ambassador Banner - After Hours

The best place to learn does not always take place in the classroom. 
Learning from field doctors opens up a world of possibilities to chiropractic students. 

The After Hours Clinic Visit Program allows a small group of students the opportunity to visit Parker alumni clinics; speak with field doctors and their staffs in a relaxed, casual atmosphere and find out what works in the “real world.” By visiting local clinics, students can see how a clinic is set up, ask questions about office billing, advertising, hiring employees, or other related topics and begin to envision what their future will be like. As the practicing chiropractor you may choose to focus the visit based on your expertise about practice management, patient retention, business management, or to simply allow the evening to remain open for questions and answers. 

Students and recent graduates - stop by the Office of Alumni Relations (S-209) to sign up to attend.
