A group of students at the University of New Mexico has formed a special interest group that encourages networking among pre-professional health care students. The thinking is that forming networks and relationships now will help them to better treat their future patients.
The Integrative Medical Education Exchange has a board of directors consisting of a medical student, a pre-chiropractic student, two pharmacy students and a recently graduated chiropractor. The membership spans all types of health care professions. Dr. Brett Kinsler spoke with several of them on this episode of On The Other Hand.

James Eubanks DC, MS, CSCS practices in Charlotte, NC and is playing the role of non-surgical spine specialist in connection to ongoing training at OrthoCarolina, one of the five largest orthopedic groups in the US. As a patient-centered, evidence based spine care specialist, Dr. Eubanks is learning the dynamics of triage and acts as spine gatekeeper, a role that is not filled by any other professional in the group. Dr. Eubanks provides us with a sort of Chiropractic/Orthopedic Relations 101 and informs other chiropractors what we can do to gain respect in an orthopedist's eyes and possibly forge a similar path.
