PAID RESIDENCY PROGRAM

EXCLUSIVE ACCESS TO ROBERT DOANE’S EXPERTISE AT THE ACUPUNCTURE & WELLNESS CENTER

The Resident Acupuncturist position is for a term of 2-3 years.

Yearly Salary Begins at $36,000

See what each year entails below:

Year 1

Building Your Confidence and Skills

You will devote your first year to building your confidence and skills with Distal Needling Acupuncture® and begin Medical Pulse Diagnosis® training. Initially, you spend up to 3-months shadowing Bob during:

  • Acupuncture treatments
  • Re-exams
  • Herbal consultations
  • Patient education
  • Initial consultations

Three months into your residency—if Bob considers you ready—you will start treating patients on your own. Expect to treat between 25-40 patients per day.

Besides the above, on the business side, you will learn how to generate new patients by doing pulse diagnosis at large events in the area. You might read the pulses of over 50 people in a day!

During this year, you will also learn the correct way to handle patients during their initial visits to the clinic. You will dive deep into the basics of patient scheduling and other clinic operations.

Year 2

Mastering Acupuncture

You will devote the second year to mastering acupuncture by continuing to hone your skills with Distal Needling Acupuncture®, and also continue to fine-tune your pulse diagnosis skills using Medical Pulse Diagnosis®.

This year, you also begin your Chinese herbal medicine training.

You will spend most of your time:

  • Treating patients on your own
  • Learning more about how to generate new patients
  • Learning about marketing & public speaking so you can run a successful Chinese herbal medicine and acupuncture clinic.

Year 3 (Optional)

Business Management in a Chinese Medicine Clinic

Your third year is optional. However, should you stay, you will gain valuable knowledge on:

  • How to educate & present plans to patients
  • Deeper dive into successful clinic operations
  • Business management as it pertains to a Chinese Medicine Clinic

Over the course of these 3 years, we gear your training to put you in a position to take the business model of our clinic—along with your medical skills, and give you the tools to duplicate our success in your own market area.

We believe that by sending you out to re-create our clinic model in another area, it allows us to make this best-practice Chinese medicine available to many more patients than we can treat in our vicinity.
