The Pursuing Private Practice Podcast with Jennifer McGurk and Guest Alex Raymond
Did you know you don’t have to have clinical experience before opening up a private practice?!
In today’s episode of the Pursuing Private Practice Podcast, Alex Raymond and I have a really honest conversation about clinical experience. Clinical experience is completely different from the experience of owning and running a private practice.
So many internship preceptors preach to their interns that clinical experience is a requirement for becoming a successful dietitian, and this just isn’t true if you want to run a private practice.
Some of the topics discussed include:
- Alex’s story of deciding not to get clinical experience
- Starting out in private practice
- Growing as a counselor
- Running a private practice as a partnership
The Pursuing Private Practice®: Beginner Basics program is a course designed to take dietitians and nutritionists from knowing nothing about running their own business to booking their first client! Beginner Basics is the only course that teaches dietitians how to successfully start and grow a private practice that specializes in Intuitive Eating. Your investment will save you time, money, and energy in the long-run. Check out the details at pursuingprivatepractice.com/beginner-basics.
