|“I registered for the business course thinking I might incorporate some rehab into my practice. But after spending two days with Dr. Steinberg and working with some amazing classmates, I left with a business plan for starting a canine rehabiliation center that I fully intend to use."

Course Description: The Business of Canine Rehabilitation will review some hallmarks of profitability and apply them to the tremendously varied approaches to a successful rehabilitation business model. Many rehabilitation practices struggle to turn the corner on profitability and end up calling their rehabilitation practice a break-even proposition or even worse a loss leader. By facing some basic facts and deciding upon the type of rehabilitation practice your situation can support, rehabilitation can be a profit center. The class will work through some exercises to help solidify the thinking that makes rehabilitation business sense.
