The best place to learn does not always take place in the classroom.
Learning from field doctors opens up a world of possibilities to chiropractic students.
The After Hours Clinic Visit Program allows a small group of students the opportunity to visit Parker alumni clinics; speak with field doctors and their staffs in a relaxed, casual atmosphere and find out what works in the “real world.” By visiting local clinics, students can see how a clinic is set up, ask questions about office billing, advertising, hiring employees, or other related topics and begin to envision what their future will be like. As the practicing chiropractor you may choose to focus the visit based on your expertise about practice management, patient retention, business management, or to simply allow the evening to remain open for questions and answers.

Dr. Charminae N. Barnes, known as Dr. Char, is an expert at preparing expecting mothers for birth through prenatal chiropractic, childbirth education, and doula care. As a child who was always completely fascinated with the entire birth process, it was only fitting that Dr. Char would focus her career on preparing moms to have the most comfortable and enjoyable pregnancy experience possible. To do this effectively, she became certified in Webster Technique through the ICPA in 2013 and founded her practice, Charms of Care Chiropractic, in December of that same year. In addition, she decided to become a birth doula through CAPPA in 2014. This not only helps her to be a better practitioner, but allows women to experience the nurturing and loving approach of a doula, while understanding the biomechanics of the body that chiropractors and childbirth educators have to offer. Come and hear Dr. Char share her experience and tips for success.
