The issues for enhancing Gonstead chiropractic education:
How to enhance the learning of adjusting skills and doctor skills in chiropractic college and not graduate with an enormous debt?
Online components to create teaching efficiencies.
Starting clinic early.
Multiple mentors and exposure to starting a practice/business 5 times. Earning income through patient care to defray tuition and living expenses.

For discussion:
7650 Hours over 6 academic years (4.5 calendar years). Clinic experience begins early in the first two years followed by rotations through 5 different satellite clinics (world-wide) offering a chance to begin a new practice 5 times with different clinical mentors. Office visits will be minimum ~2-3000. The student earns income through service to cover tuition and living expenses in the final 2.5 years.
