Transition to Practice Seminar – from the Classroom to the Clinic Seminar

ATMS is excited to announce we will be hosting a special student event, Transition to Practice Seminar, presented by Robert Medhurst and Christine Pope in Brisbane, on Sunday 25 August 2019 at Hotel Grand Chancellor Brisbane.


The Seminar will provide a clear step-by-step guide on how to set up a practice – what you should be doing NOW as a student and what to do once you graduate to make your clinic as successful as it can be.


The Seminar will provide practical insights on:


  • Where and how to set up a practice
  • How to set up and manage your marketing and finances
  • How to create a website and build your business through social media
  • What you should be doing to prepare for practice before you graduate
  • Tips and traps for the newly graduated


ATMS encourage all complementary health students and recent graduates to attend this one-day event and learn from industry experienced professionals!

“Outstanding practical information and passionately presented, I loved it and got lots of value from being there.”
