Referring: A natural part of being a D.C.

Dr. Burt

As a Palmer graduate, you have the ability to identify others who possess the skills necessary to become a chiropractor. They may be one of your patients, a student at a career fair or someone attending a health talk. It all starts by simply talking and listening to others, which is a natural part of being a D.C. For example, you may have students who are unsure of what they want to do after graduation. This is a perfect opportunity for you to plant the seeds for them to consider chiropractic and attending Palmer College. After all, Palmer College is The Trusted Leader in Chiropractic Education. Beginning on page 14, eight students share the important role alumni played in their decision to attend Palmer.

One of the most valuable benefits of referring a student is that you get to help select the quality of the individual who may one day be working in your community—whether in their own office down the road or as an associate in your practice. This simple act also helps ensure that when you retire, other chiropractors with the same conviction as yours will be there to continue the care of your patients and those that follow.

To learn how you can attract prospective students, contact the Alumni Office. We have all of the promotional materials you’ll need, including a PowerPoint presentation that explains chiropractic, the value of a Palmer education and the satisfaction that comes from being a chiropractor. We can also answer any referral questions you may have.

By referring a prospective student, you can play a big part in the preparation of the next generation of chiropractors and, in turn, help shape the future of chiropractic.
