TOPIC: Tips On Practicing International Chiropractic
Planning on practicing in a foreign country is an exciting prospect. The following topics have been written by chiropractors from our consular list and others from different countries in an effort to share some of their experiences with you. The idea is to help put a little more reality into what Internationally-minded chiropractors think and understand about setting up a foreign practice. The topics are written in a general context and not to be construed as a proven method of steps that apply everywhere. Each country has its own laws, regulations and procedures. This information is easily updated, so if you or someone you know has information which adds to these TOPICS your input will be appreciated. “If you fail to plan… you plan to fail.”
