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 format. Residents will be applying to be one of eight applicants to physically attend the lectures and be given one to one mentoring. Non -residents will be able to access a pdf copy of the lecture notes and a recording of the lecture and be invited to ask questions via email. 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). The cost of the program is $110 but each participant, both resident or non-resident, will be given a $110 discount coupon for the Assessment & Treatment Intro course essentially making it a free program.
