Pilot Mentorship Program 

For recent grads and soon-to-be-grads:

TNOTAs Student Involvement Committee would like to invite practitioners and new grads to be a part of a pilot mentorship program in which new and experienced practitioners will be paired for mentorship. We are seeking OT practitioners interested in being a mentor or mentee. If you have an interest in joining this pilot mentorship program please email Morgan Webb at [email protected] with your name, mentor or mentee preference, and years of experience by September 30.
