I am extremely proud to offer a Scholarship program for Chiropractic Students, New Graduates and deserving Chiropractors each year.
My scholarship program was developed in response to the financial difficulties felt by students and new graduates in being able to afford vital seminars when starting out in practice. It also further builds the confidence and practice certainty in relation to chiropractic paediatric care. It’s my way of giving back to a profession I cherish and helping to secure its future in family care.
Why Offer A Scholarship Program
As a new graduate I really struggled to find my feet with family care. University gave me excellent education on how to adjust, management of back pain and other spine related disorders in adults. However, working with children was daunting, dynamic and often unpredictable. How do I manage their care? How do I communicate with them? The other tricky thing was finances. I graduated with debt and struggled to pay for rent in our contractor style industry, let alone get to the seminars I truly needed.
Although I had the opportunity to observe some amazing chiropractors during that time, I found the path to confidence and competency in family care a difficult one. This uncertainty really concerned me and I remember this vividly still today.
Now that I am travelling around the world, teaching, training and working online with Chiropractors it is now time to help you, the Chiropractic Student / Graduating Chiropractor to gain skills, direction and confidence early so you can hit the ground running.
In my first year of business during the 2014-2015 financial year, my Scholarship fund awarded just under $10,000 worth of seminar education and products.
Listen to some of our amazing scholarship recipients and hear how we were able to instil confidence, help with direction and competency when it comes to managing kids in practice, planning their care and managing their progress under chiropractic care.
What people are saying
I found the ‘Mark their steps’ seminar useful to better understand the management of kids and the communication that can be improved so we can get parents to understand the importance of the care. I also really liked the layout of the Well Kids program which is a useful resource to have in practice. Thanks to the ‘Mark their Steps’ program for the scholarship as a new graduate the knowledge has been so helpful!

Mark their Steps was very inspirational, motivational and educational. I had high expectations for the day but they were exceeded! Would recommend all my fellow chiros/students who have an interest in family health to attend this workshop. Thank you very much!

Content was very clear, and easy to understand and put into practice. The purpose was repeated and reiterated so I know exactly what I need to do… I’m just burning to get into practice already!!!
