What is one chiropractic technique you could do without, and why?
 
User Submitted Interview Answers
1.
I think I will not be fond of the paperwork need to deal with insurance companies as I have learned from previous chiropractors the difficulties they encounter with insurance companies.
 
2.
Perhaps just the noises of the bones cracking or maybe seeing people IN pain.
 
3.
The thing that I would like least would be the patients who even after your try to help find that nothing has helped.
 
4.
I enjoy all aspects of helping people, however my only flaw is understanding money and how the whole system of finance works. I am currently taking care of this flaw through a financial elective I am taking at school.

The billing with insurance and dealing with ignorance of people about chiropractors.
 
Question
3 of 49
Which of your post-secondary courses interested you the most?
 
User Submitted Interview Answers
1.
Really it was whenever my paradigm was challenged and I could also learn about my own culture simultaneously. An example of that would be Pacifc Islander American Studies or Asian Pacific American Psych, courses like that in the humanities.
 
2.
The college course that interested me the most would have to be my anatomy lab. It allowed me to look at bones first hand as well as muscles and how everything works together nothing in isolation does what it substantially does in working together with everything else. It brought more reality to the lectures we went over in class considering we got a chance to be up close with what we learned providing us with a hands on experience.
 
3.
Injuries and Contraindications interested me the most. This course was actually taught by a chiropractor, and I enjoyed learning about the healing process the human body goes through. I have also gained a respect for the human body and the defense mechanisms that are put into place in order to prevent injuries from occuring.
 
4.
Physiology, chiropractic clinical work.
 
5.
I loved a course on exercise prescription where we took diseased populations and through research determined what exercise can do for them, and how they should exercise. I enjoyed exercise physiology and learning how the human body responds to exercise in lots of conditions and adaptations we can see in the body.

Being a chiropractor can be very demanding and stressful at times. When you need to take a breather, or let off some steam, what do you do?
 
User Submitted Interview Answers
1.
I first try to breakdown the problem myself and try to approach it from different angles and when I can't get a hold of resolving it I due turn to either one of my friends or a family member who can provide me with a different perspective.
 
2.
When I need counseling for personal problems, I would consult one or two people close to me like my parents, or a close friend. However, I am one for solving my own problems, and I can recognize how to treat my problems myself before asking for help.
 
3.
I talk to my church community and mom.

I am most proud of my achievement in my academic career. It takes a lot to understand what one truly loves in life, and for me, it is the love of the science of the human body, and how we can fix the human body to be pain free to accomplish daily tasks. I have come to understand multiple factors that can affect our life through not only the physical attributes, but spiritual, social, or intellectual aspects of wellness - and how all aspects of wellness can inter relate with each other. I am proud to take on helping others as a career.

Exceeding the expectations of my employee and showing results of my hard work when I was a teacher.
 
Question
6 of 49
Why did you choose to become a chiropractor?
 
User Submitted Interview Answers
1.
I chose this program because I enjoy helping people, and I would like to gain the knowledge to treat people through the skills learned in this profession.
 
2.
I met two chiropractors who graduated from Palmer and I liked them. Since they both graduated from Palmer, I trust that Palmer provides the best education on Chiropractic.
 
3.
I first looked into the DC program at UWS after I visited portland with my family last summer. My mom completed a masters of education through U-portland and she was completing a residency of sorts so I went on a road trip with my sister to go and visit and I fell in love with the city. It reminds me a lot of my favourite places in Edmonton and around Alberta all mixed into one beautiful city. I also looked at how well UWS students performed on board exams, and they consistently had a high pass rate on the Canadian exams as well as the American ones. Because I plan on returning to Canada this only makes sense.
 
4.
I attended an open campus event for a different school with a friend and knew that this field was for me.. After doing much research, I concluded that this school has the best fit program for me and I enjoy the electives that have to do with women's health. I have also really wanted to move to Portland for a while now.
 
5.
I know Palmer from Dr Lendon Suggs and Dr Baines. Both Phenomenal Chiropractors that went through the program and really impress me with how they have a healing touch and the skills they need to treat. My brother Dr Matt Cline went through Palmer Chiropractic Florida and he told me it was very hands on learning and though it was the most challenging learning he had ever done, that he was well equipped to buy a practice. Also, since I have lived in the area I will be able to bring in patients quite easily when it comes time for the supervised clinical setting.

Discuss National Health Insurance and how it has affected your patients and practice.
 
User Submitted Interview Answers
1.
Chiropractic care is backed by scientific literature, which can be helpful in getting insurance to pay for part or all of this treatment. I do know that many people cannot afford alternative medicine, but believe in helping people, so when it comes time to cross that bridge, I am hoping that myself and potential colleagues will be able to figure something out to be able to make this treatment affordable to all.
