Dr. Christopher Segler was invited to speak to Podiatry Students at the California School of Podiatric Medicine’s Student Chapter of the American Academy of Podiatric Practice Management.
The primary reason Dr. Segler was invited to speak at the school was because he wrote a book teaching podiatrists how to set up a house calls-based practice and provide better care with more individualized attention to patients.
When asked about the session, Dr. Segler replied, “I think it’s really important for students to learn right away that they want to be a better doctor they have to think differently. Our system is set up to provide cookie-cutter medicine. Granted it may be good cookie-cutter medicine but it’s still not individualized. No matter which type of practice these young doctors choose, they need to make sure that they’re creative in the way they deliver care if they really want to be the best doctors in their communities.”
To help supplement the standardize medical school education, Dr. Segler will also be hosting a regularly scheduled practice management book club at his home for the students.
