Vacation after Graduation?

This post is simply a discussion out loud as I am deciding whether or not to take some time off after I graduate and before I start my practice. 

Some possible destinations: 

  • Backpacking through Europe with some old friends
  • Trekking through the Costa Rica jungle
  • Surfing the coast of Baja 

So I have heard many different opinions from recent chiropractic graduates and chiropractors who have been in practice for a while. 

The major theme I am seeing is that it is important to take a break, relax, and let loose after graduation for at least two weeks but more people have suggested that up to a month! I thought this was a little excessive noting that I don't have too much funds to spend now but many say it is well worth it the break and will actually help me be more productive when I return and start practice. 

So I am opening this discussion up to the masses, any opinions on taking a break after graduation?


  1. I think I'm gonna go with the obligatory backpacking through Europe trip. You've gotta do it sometime right? I've also heard that just focusing on Scandinavia is beautiful, and a backpackers dream. These are the two i'm considering at least.. Too bad I'm three months behind you, we could go together!!

  2. Thanks for the comment Jessi, I agree I'd love to do Scandinavia + Germany, Austria, France, and possibly Italy.
