Hi. I am glad to find this newsgroup. I am a recent grad in Audiology
and would like to start up a practice after I finish my CFY. I have been
studying the area of tinnitus for about 12 months and am planning to
attend Jastreboff's training seminar in May.
I am interested in figuring out how to start up a Tinnitus Treatment
Center here in Oregon. I should mention that I have a strong business
background as well as 5 years of counseling troubled adults and youth.
Another sideline I am working on now is the production and marketing of
tabletop water fountains for use by tinnitus sufferers in offices, etc.
Hopefully, the brochure will be completed soon as I have had many requests
already for details.
I would like to hear from others as to the benefits/costs of associating
with an MD or an independent practice. I have spoken with a few ENTs OTs
and also NDs who seem interested. What might the dangers be?
Any thoughts would be most appreciated.
