Transition to Practice Workshops

Transition to Practice Workshops

Date: 18 Sep 2022 - 13 Nov 2022
Where: Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Brisbane


Moving from being a student to practitioner can often create anxiety and uncertainty. Take the first steps in your career by attending free Transition to Practice Workshops.

ACA, in association with Guild Insurance and the ACA HR Service, have developed these workshops for all fourth and final year chiropractic students as well as first year graduates, to assist you with transition to a practising chiropractor. Giving you the tools to confidently move into practice.

The workshop will feature a Q & A Panel offering an opportunity to hear from early career colleagues about the positives and negatives of transitioning from student to practitioner, as well as being able to ask questions, seek advice and guidance on the do’s and dont’s of practice.

Some of the key topics discussed included:

  • moving into practice in a regulated health profession;
  • contracts and employment law; and
  • minimising your risk of complaint.
