Building a Psychedelic Medicine Clinic Workshop
Workshop Two: Psychedelic Clinic Operations and Planning
PRATI’s Building a Psychedelic Medicine Clinic Workshop 2 offers practical examples from various US clinics actively engaged in the psychedelic framework through a variety of instructional formats. The program provides insight into the future of psychedelic medicine with a focus on core topics that include: clinical setting, practice management, legal considerations, ethical concerns, and marketing plans.
Attendees will leave equipped with an understanding of core business and clinic fundamentals uniquely tailored to support this emergent healing paradigm and the future business of psychedelic medicine. PRATI is a psychedelically focused non-profit that has been supported by the Psychedelic Science Funders Collaborative to put on this webinar to speed the emergence of this new paradigm.
