The recent graduates Mentorship Program has been created to foster the development of excellence in the next generation of practitioners with advanced education and mentoring. It’s designed to help support recently graduated therapists in their quest to become exceptional manual therapy practitioners. Taught by James McEwan and Haydn Gambling, the program supplements the coursework offered by Manual Therapy Institute and Jones Institute Australasia with additional lectures and mentoring support. The program is split into 10, two hour lectures spaced over a two year period covering topics as varied as goal setting, marketing, communication skills, assessment, exercise prescription, nutrition and styles of practice. The program is now being offered in a resident and non-resident participant format. Resident participants will be applying to be one of eight applicants invited to physically attend the lectures and be offered one to one mentoring. Non-resident participants will have access to pdf copies of the lecture notes and a video recording of the lecture and be invited to ask questions via a group forum.
Eligibility for the program extends to applicants who have completed a physiotherapy, osteopathy or remedial massage therapy program within the last 5 years of the date of their application (AHPRA registration &/or provider number will need to be provided). Students still in tertiary study can apply and will be accepted as a non-resident or possibly a resident on a case by case basis. The cost of the program is $110 but each participant will be given a $110 discount coupon for the Assessment & Treatment Intro course essentially making it a free program. Applications for the 2020/21 program closes for resident applicants on February 24th, 2020 and on July 1st, 2020 for non-resident applicants.
