All-Star Clinician Series: How to Thrive as a Young Clinician in the “New Normal” During and After the Pandemic


Overview of the Series:

Do you want a clear path on how to channel your clinical skills to make a bigger difference in your patients' lives AND how to apply practice management skills to your practice that leads to even better results - right now?

Join Darryl Yardley as he introduces you to some critical factors to become successful in your career. Darryl’s been a physio for more than a decade and has mentored and helped hundreds of physios achieve all-star status in their practice. He will also give you the know-how to keep your caseload full and double your patient success stories. 

Darryl told us that far too often he has conversations with young clinicians who find themselves in poor job situations, are unsure how to negotiate a contract, are not making the money they expected, and are stagnant in their career (to name a few).

Don’t let this be you. Darryl will share with you what he discovered over the years—and what he wished he would have known sooner.

You can register for individual sessions, but to get the most out of it, it's highly recommended to attend all (register for all sessions here). These sessions are being offered for free to all students and new graduates (see more in the 'Who is this series for?” section below). Each session will be recorded and made available for free to Embodia Members only.
