Course Descriptions

Mentoring Model

Participants participate in monthly 1:1 mentoring with a pelvic health clinician in the first 6 months of the program in a live or virtual format. Sessions are focused on clinical topics, building a sustainable practice, and creating a resilient and balanced approach to care. In the months 7-18, participants meet with their mentor twice per month to expand upon topics as their pelvic health caseload expands. Over the next 18 months mentorship is completed on an as needed basis. Our Mentoring Coordinator assists participants in achieving all mentoring requirements throughout the year.
