You Took a Hormone Course, Now What? The Nuts and Bolts of Building a Hormonal Practice from Operations, Marketing, and Legal Aspects
So you took a hormone course and now you are left scratching you head. “Now what?” you ask. This is a very familiar tale, with clinicians who have taken weekend courses on BRHT and are left with no idea how to take the steps to incorporate what they have learned into a successful clinical strategy. More importantly, they may not know the proper steps to protect themselves legally as well as from board actions. To make matters worse, they are also frustrated as they have no idea how to market their new learnings or how to separate from “the pack” of the ever growing competitive marketplace. During this presentation, attendees will learn necessary steps and actions to operationalize hormones into their practice as well as legal considerations and protection. In addition, they will learn best strategies in marketing and how to lead the way into a successful hormonal practice.
