I have a training program and when certain hurdles are completed students are able to manage more on their own.

When the student demonstrates the desire to do them.

I currently do not do screening but Associates do. Students can be heading them up as soon as possible.
Will a student leaving your practice after a PEAK experience be ready to open their own practice?
I believe you will have so much more knowledge by having a PEAK experience that it will give you an advantage to the students that do not PEAK. I do believe that an Associate position will set you up for a successful practice along with PEAK.
What have been your biggest lessons from the PEAK experience?
We are always learning!
What words of advice can you offer PEAK interns?
I would recommend that you go into the PEAK experience with excitement and openness. You can learn a ton, have fun and be part of helping a lot of people through Chiropractic care! That just brings a smile to my face.
