Teaching and Mentoring

Residency and Fellowship training ends and then the question “What’s next?” comes up. For many, the desire to mentor and teach is extremely important, not only to give back but as a great way to learn. The profession of physical therapy includes education-we educate our patients all the time. The desire to teach has brought many to the profession. For some, teaching other PT’s is an important goal. One of the pillars of MTI was based on providing the opportunity to teach and train those that come after.

GET PAID TO TRAIN: Giving back often involves training the physical therapy students that come behind you. The valuable clinical skills you develop through residency and fellowship training can help develop and inspire the next generation. As we value teaching, it is not an expectation that you give of yourself for free. We value your time as a mentor for students, residents and fellows, compensating you for these efforts.
