Find Your Trail Guides: The Directory of Hospital-based Learning Opportunities for Acupuncturists

This will also be published on the website blog--just getting through some tech learning curve with the website blog.  :)

The Hospital-practice Handbook Project’s Directory of Hospital-based Learning Opportunities for Acupuncturists
Full explanation at this blogpost

Go to this Link to add your resource to the directory

Background and Introduction
This directory came out of feedback from the “How do I get my Foot in the Door of Hospital Practice” blogpost series that posted spring and summer 2018. The 3 main stepping stones in that series are: nonclinical volunteer work, shadowing, and cultivating mentor-relationships. The series was re-written into a booklet, Get Your Foot in the Door: First Steps for the Acupuncturist or Integrative Health Student Interested in Hospital-Based Practice; go to this page to order it and here to order the companion workbook that walks you through the exercises laid out in the booklet.

If you are a new hospital employee, I recommend you sign up for the upcoming (summer or fall 2019) audiovisual resource "Basics of Being An Employee in a Healthcare System".
