Clinical Shifts

How worthwhile are your clinical shifts? Do you see enough patients, are you treating the same conditions with all your patients, and do you learn how to manage the all important factor of time? Theory is one thing, but actually "needle time" is what's needed from your clinical shifts to turn out quality practitioners. Being in a practice requires a good knowledge of many different disorders and an insanely good ability to juggle a schedule.
