How to get your tuition money’s worth

Dr. Jaclyn Chasse speaks on the importance of getting the maximum value out of your education, and how that transitions to getting a running start with your career.

The Interview

When you’re in school, you are investing so much money into your education. I just think you need to put all your time into becoming a good clinician. I actually faced that, because I was trying to pay my bills at the same time and thought “Maybe I’ll get a job waitressing, or maybe I’ll get  job doing something different on the side.”  Don’t waste time trying to make a buck on the side. You really need to just make sure you’re soaking in every ounce of value out of that investment. I wish I had spent more time developing my business plan and actually thinking about what would happen afterward. What my core market would be, where I wanted to be, studying my competitors, building a website. That could all be done ahead of time so that as soon as you get your license, all you’re doing is kicking it into gear. You’re implementing a marketing plan that you’ve developed ahead of time. I wish I’d had more forethought about that. I think that’s a really smart move for students to do when they’re in school still.
