“Far exceeds anything we received in dental school” – Survey respondent
BUSINESS BOOTCAMP for DENTISTS™ graduate survey results are in from the completed Fall 2010 session. The feedback was valuable and enlightening; thank you to all the students who completed the survey! Here are some of the insights from students who have earned their Bootcamp dogtags….
100% of respondents felt that this program is highly valuable, met their expectations, and that they received excellent return for their investment dollars. The chief motivating factors were a strong need to develop their business skills and the fact that the on-line classroom environment was convenient for them (with no loss of production as classes are in the evenings). To a much lesser extent was the fact that CE credits would be earned or that they were simply interested in the content. To me, this implies that dentists feel a real need to develop their business skills – not just a lassez faire interest that might earn them a few CE points.
General comments about the course content was that it provided a good, solid start to learning business fundamentals, far exceeding any training received in dental school. The most valuable take-aways were; understanding how to read financial statements, how to write a simple business plan, and being taught business basics.
A whopping 100% of students who have completed Business Bootcamp for Dentists™ would recommend this program to their colleagues and associates and many said they would consider retaking the program as alumni students (alumni students can register for subsequent programs at a deep discount).
The next session of Business Bootcamp for Dentists™ is scheduled to begin Feb.3, 2011. Many of the excellent suggestions from graduate students will be incorporated into subsequent sessions and Bootcamp will continue to evolve. Thank you to all the graduating students who completed the survey. Hang your dogtags in your office with pride – you earned them!
