Starting a Private Practice

Thinking of moving into your own private practice? Establishing a private practice presents an opportunity for great flexibility and professional independence. It is, however, a big step. Drawing on his own experience, Mitch shares a practical tool box for getting started. He moves us through the practical details including registering for an ABN, bookkeeping and negotiating rental agreements. He is reflective on his own experience as well as offering advice on alternative options. Once the business considerations have been established, it is time to look to the systems, programs and equipment that are needed to carry out the clinical work of an Exercise Physiology practice. Mitch starts a discussion that leaves room for your experience to help guide your choices. At the end of the day, Mitch wisely offers, that if you set up a business you need to have systems in place that allow you to run it whilst also looking after yourself. You also have an opportunity to create an atmosphere that is safe and supportive of your client’s best interests. Sounds easy? Think again. Don’t underestimate the commitment and consider the right time to make the leap.
