How do you think your role as a Chiropractor fits in with your role as a member of the community?

User Submitted Interview Answers

1.
I will be able to fit in by providing health education on the importance on the spinal cord and nervous system. I can also provide care for my community, those who are in need to improve their health conditions.
 
2.
As an educator and a health professional.
 
3.
As a community member, I'm expected to help my community in any way that I can. As a chiropractor, I would not only be helping my community but I would also be helping my community members.
 
4.
I think that I better the health of the community by showing people a better way to get healthy and stay healthy. Its not reliance on drugs that will cure, but instead a Holistic treatment plan that uses your body to heal itself. My community will be better for what me as a Chiropractor can give them as far as a better quality of life.
 
5.
I offer an resource for addressing health concerns without any drugs or surgery.
 
6.
In the community we want to be good Samaritans that when see someone in need we don't hesitate to provide a helping hand. For a chiropractor the foundation is the same patients come in with concerns and we look to finding out more about the patient and try to find the best approach to help then in anyway possible.
 
7.
I am very much involve in the community and this role will give me an opportunity to help people beyond any limitation.
 
8.
I think that a chiropractor's role in the community is as a holistic care activist and helping people of the community with their health issues.
 
9.
I think it is important to see that being a Chiropractor enables myself to be a "primary care" worker, and that being a part of the community, I am essentially always on duty to help others in any way I can through my knowledge and skillset provided to me. However, besides that point, being a chiropractor as well as a member of the community should not change the way I view other people, nor should it grant me the right to tell people how to live their life. It is important to keep my work, through confidence, separate from my day to day life in the community.
 
10.
I will do what ever I need to change in order to improve my chance of being accepted.

Question

How will you pay for chiropractic school?

User Submitted Interview Answers

1.
Saved finances, family assistance, government student loans.
 
2.
Fincancial loans, work-study.
 
3.
Because I am applying for January 2017, I will have a few months to work and save up as much as I can before moving to Portland. I already have a saving account that I add to every month, and I hope to save up enough for rent and groceries for the full 3-4 years before I move down. I will also be applying for student loans, as well as scholarships and bursaries to cover as much of the cost as possible. My parents are also very willing to contribute to my studies and help me out if need be. They are very supportive of my goals and career choice.
 
4.
I have applied for a professional line of credit.

I have a little money saved up but that will barely touch estimated living expenses, so I will be relying on loans.

7.
I have been working part-time since the summer of 2010, and I have developed the skill to save my money. However, I have not accumulated the direct amount that is needed for chiropractic school, and I have consulted my bank, and we have arranged a loan I can take when it is needed.
 
8.
My parents are willing to pay if I get accepted.
 
9.
My parents would initially pay for it, however when I have a steady job I would pay them back.

Question
#5 of 50

What do you think you will like least about Chiropractor?

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.
The billing with insurance and dealing with ignorance of people about chiropractors.
 
3.
The long hours of work. Most chiropractors I know work from sun up to sun down at the office and I would want to get away to see my kids play and spend time with family. But I am confident I can workout my schedule with seeing patients around my priorities in life.
 
4.
The thing that I would like least would be the patients who even after your try to help find that nothing has helped.
 
5.
I think what I will like least is that if I am out of appointment times then I won't be able to provide treatment as quickly as I would like to.
 
6.
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.
 
7.
I believe I will like every aspect of it.
 
8.
I think I will like the first year least because it will consist of a lot of generality.

As a chiropractor I feel I would least like working with moody clients.
 

Question
#6 of 50

What are your 2 best points?

User Submitted Interview Answers

1.
My positivity, want to encourage others.
 
2.
I am an extremely driven person. I set goals for myself and I feel an incredible sense of accomplishment when I achieve them. I am not afraid to work hard and make saccrifices or take risks to achieve my goals. For example, this summer I was offered my dream summer job working in Jasper National Park which I accepted. The major downside to moving to Jasper and living in the housing I was offered was the isolation. I lived 60km away from the nearest town, gas station and grocery store, and because of the elevation and location of my house, there was no phone service within 25 km, and no internet or TV (except for movies). It was a huge adjustment for me, but in the end I loved my job and had an amazing summer! I am also an incredibly compassionate person with a desire to help others. I really enjoy working with people of all ages, especially in a leadership role.
 
3.
Character, I know that I have a lot riding on my name, so I make every effort for integrity and hard work even when the boss is not over my shoulder. I am intuitive as a person, I can put my mind to something with the right resources and rise to the occasion of any task placed before me. I seem to be good at asking the right questions.
 
4.
My two best points would be my motivation and being determined to make sure something is done( never giving up on helping a patient with their problem)
 
5.
My two best points are: being confident, and being caring / understanding. It will be especially important to take these two points into the chiropractic career, through treating patients with comfort and care.
 
6.
I am patient and willing.
 
7.
I am a really fast learner and a good listener.
 

Work Environment

Chiropractors typically work in office settings that are clean and comfortable. They may be on their feet for long periods when examining and caring for patients. Chiropractors work full time.

Question
#7 of 50

Which of your college courses interested you the most?

User Submitted Interview Answers

1.
There were 3 courses that stood out to me in my university career. The first class I was surprised I liked so much, because I enrolled at the last possible second. It was a third year pharmacology course that looked at the way drugs, particularly recreational drugs affected the brain and central nervous system. I had no real exposure to recreational drugs before that class, and I found it fascinating to see what actually happens neurologically to make drugs so addicting. The second class I loved was the first neuroscience-specific course I really took at university, and it was an advanced neuroanatomy class. I was really surprised to learn how intracately interconnected the brain and body is. Finally, I have taken a music course throughout university. Music is something very dear to me, I have many family members who are professional musicians in some capacity, and music has always been a huge part of my life. I took a singing class, and actually used the professor as one of my references on my application. I found singing to be challenging in a completely different way. There was no real memorizing or fact learning, but it was incredibly stimulating. I used that class as my creative outlet throughout school, and there were some days when the only thing motivating me to get out of bed in the middle of winter was going to class to sing.
 
2.
Physiology, chiropractic clinical work.
 
3.
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.
 
4.
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.
 
5.
I really enjoyed anatomy. I liked learning about how everything is interconnected in the body. Before completing the course I never realized that there were so many muscles, bones, and everything else inside of our bodies.
 
6.
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.
 
7.
Anatomy and physiology, organic chemistry.
 
8.
History, psychology, physical education, and English have always interested me the most.
 

Question
#8 of 50

What will you do if you aren't accepted to Chiropractic school?

User Submitted Interview Answers

1.
I will take an anatomy class and apply again to chiropractic school. I will also look for a job at a chiropractic office.
 
2.
If not accepted to Chiropractic School I will work in an office as a rehab tech, strengthen my application and reapply as soon as I have fixed any weak spots in my application.
 
3.
I will go back to school for a semester and upgrade my courses. Then I will work a full time job until I can apply again.
 
4.
If I am not accepted to chiropractic school, I would like to extend my knowledge of the human body even further and do a masters degree in rehabilitation science. I would also be eager to even further improve my clinical skills through volunteering at rehabilitation clinics. I would apply to Chiropractic school again the following year.
 
5.
I will continue my education and try again.
 
6.
I read a lot about your school and everything seems to be perfect. The only things I don't know about are the people and the experience.

Name something you are most proud of.

User Submitted Interview Answers

5.
Earning my doctorate of chiropractic.
 
6.
I am most proud of being able to have the opportunity to further my education, considering the society we live in today is educated and being able to consider myself an educated women is something I am truly proud of. I find that due to my parents I am where I am and have been able to do what I am able to do due to their hard work and coming to this country enduring hardship and providing for their family.
 
7.
One thing that I am most proud of is motivating my good friend to start attending the gym. I then helped him keep on track and make sure to keep going. I'm proud of this because it shows that I can motivate and be a leader.
 
8.
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.
 
9.
I am most proud of the bed I designed and my dad built because it is functional.

Question
#13 of 50

Why did you choose our specific program?

User Submitted Interview Answers

1.
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.
 
2.
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.
 
3.
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.
 
4.
I chose your program because of the evidence based approach that you take. I currently have a friend at the program and they highly recommenced that school.
 
5.
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.
 

Question
#14 of 50

What would your best friend say about you in convincing me I should admit you to our Chiropractic school?

User Submitted Interview Answers

1.
My best friend would tell you that your school would be lucky to have me. She would tell you that I work harder and smarter than anyone else that we know, including herself. She would say my passion for chiropractic oozes out of me.
 
2.
Heather is hard working, determined in her academics. When she is with her friends, she is personable, that makes her relate to her friends in most situation. She is a good listener.
 
3.
She would say "Tina is the dream" and then she would probably talk about my ambition. I decided when I was about 10 years old that I wanted to be like my chiropractor when I grew up and the more I grew up and looked into it, the more I thought it was a good idea! I think she would also talk about my work ethic and willingness to help others.
 
4.
Probably that since I entered school I had in mind that I wanted to be a Chiropractor and told anyone who asked and I was unwavering in my preparations. That I knew my stuff .
 
5.
My best friend would tell you I am one of the most dedicated people to have a successful career as a chiropractor. He would tell you that my definition of success is not about financial earnings, but how effectively I treat my patients. He would tell you that I am one of the most motivated people out there, and that I motivate other people with my motivations.
 
6.
My best friend might say that I am one of the most caring and willing person she knows. Then she'd probably ramble on about the times I got things done when no one wanted to. And then talk about how I love practical application and how chiropractics is the very profession for me.
 

Question
#15 of 50

What are your 2 weakest points?

User Submitted Interview Answers

1.
I'm too optimistic about outcomes. And sometimes don't know when to give up.
 
2.
I can be critical, if something doesn't sit right with me, it can distract me for a while. But I'm moving past that, in college I had some professors that were easy to be critical of, but I found it didn't help me to complain, but instead to buckle down and get to work. I could only control what I could control. As far as schooling goes, I tend to make the mistake of waiting for a failure to motivate me to study hard, but I learned that about me in undergrad, and coming into this Doctorate program, I know 100% that I will be blocking out my hours from day 1. Test 1 shouldn't be my worst grade, it should be my highest and I am working on that.
 
3.
My two weakest points would be my knowledge of the financial world (I don't know much about taxes), and that I am very critical of my own work. While this is beneficial to performance, it is possible to go to extremes.
