Someone who can mentor you to
- Write a business plan
- Develop a webpage
- Use social media for marketing
- RDN in private practice
- Retail establishment
Before you start with the preceptor you’ll have forty hours of case studies and simulations to prepare you to do the assignments.
These must be completed before you can work with your mentor. Examples include:
- Review websites (identify the good, the bad, what is evidence-based and what is not)
- Set up a Linked In account. Write a blog and post it on your Linked-In page
- Make an Instagram post (your KADDI clinical instructor will review and approve
it so we can put it up on the KADDI account)
- Review a book about how to write a business plan (it is not a long one and you do not have to have a Harvard MBA to understand it)
Eight weeks before you begin your on-site rotation you must secure a preceptor. It is best if they are local and you can go to their
business. However, distance relationships can work, too.
Four weeks before you begin, you and the preceptor will write and agree on a contract (KADDI has a template).
- A schedule of tasks you will do (define the deliverables)
- Due dates for each task
- Dates when the preceptor will give you feedback
The program director reviews and approves the contract.
you start with the preceptor you will have three major assignments, plus what the preceptor has contracted with you to do for them. Often they will allow you to have enriching experiences like helping with billing or doing research and developing client education
materials. The required assignments are:
- Write a business plan for yourself
a website for your proposed business
- Experiment with social media (this is usually done for the preceptor’s business)
The preceptor evaluates you on the assignments
You evaluate the preceptor and the rotation.
