Dr. Greg Stoltz
I graduated from NYCC in 2019 and am currently in private practice in Ottawa, Ontario. This will be my second term as part of the OCA Student and New Graduate Advisory Council and I am excited to take the experiences that I have gained through my first 3 years of clinical practice to this council.
I chose to serve on the OCA Student and New Graduate Advisory Council to make a difference within the profession. Serving on this Council provides an opportunity to voice my opinions and contribute to the unified vision that chiropractors in Ontario present. Through my education, I’ve had the privilege to serve in leadership roles, including my position on the executive council of the Canadian Chiropractic Club at New York Chiropractic College, and being a part of team that was able to make international chapters of the SCCA. Through the community that we have built at school, and now in practice Ottawa, I feel that I have developed an understanding of the struggles facing new graduates. I hope to provide a voice for our community and help lead the profession forward.
The greatest challenge for new graduates is the transition from full-time academics to full-time practice. Chiropractic college prepares us to be extremely competent doctors. However, there is a wide disparity between what we learn in school and the challenges we’ll face in practice, especially outside of the treatment room.
My goal is to help create a path for students and new graduates that will lead them to success. With proper understanding and preparation for the coming challenges, alongside a community willing to provide guidance, I hope to see new graduates flourish throughout the first few years of practice.
