CBP 053: My Bar-Side Q&A with DPT Students – PPS Conference Episode Part 1

The 2016 Private Practice Section annual conference was held in Las Vegas and I had a blast. That’s especially apparent in this bar-side chat with a group of PT students. Please excuse the background noise and occasional evidence of inebriation. In all seriousness, this group of DPT students were incredibly impressive and had great questions.image-for-pps-2016-part-one-dpt-students

In this episode, you’ll hear my answers to the following questions:

  • What do you wish you would have known as you came out of PT school?
  • What could students do while in PT school to best prepare for potentially becoming private practice owners?
  • How would a fresh PT / new grad know they are ready to start their own private practice?
  • Do you think that starting a practice right out of PT school would limit you from being able to become a great clinician?

Hey Jarod,

There is and has been a site right on the PPS webpage and you don’t have to be a member to see it (anyone can view it).

I’m a past winner and we have been increasing entries of late and are working to redo fine and market it this year with this year’s student winner joining our team.

Happy to talk more about it. Also would like to talk about how PPS could support podcasts at annual conference and Csm in a way that benefits both parties.

Thanks so much Chris! I’ll update the link in the show notes above.

CSM, NEXT, and other (Non-PPS) APTA conferences have always been good about reaching out to PTs with podcasts and online audiences to offer press passes, encouraging coverage and increased promotion of the events. Unfortunately, every year PPS denies my and others’ requests for press credentials. Perhaps over time the leadership will start to recognize how beneficial it could be to have PTs with large audiences promoting the event and the Section every year … but so far, no dice. If you have any influence and could use any stats/info from me or my colleagues online, please let me know.
