Are you interested in becoming a mentor?

We are looking for highly experienced, seasoned hand therapists who are willing to share their hard-earned wisdom, advice and clinical expertise with novice therapists who are interested in advancing their knowledge in delivering hand therapy services and perhaps becoming a CHT.  Remember that one individual who lit the fire in you and kindled your passion for hand therapy?  Perhaps, he/she is an instructor, supervisor, clinical instructor.  You could be rewarded with filling that role for someone else and “paying it forward.”  You can serve in any capacity that suits your interest level from advice over the phone to a more formal in-person mentoring experience.

If you are interested in becoming a mentor, please contact vicepresident@tsht.org.  Please include your city of practice, preferred contact method (email, phone, etc.) and your preferred level of involvement. Your information will be emailed to all the prospective TSHT members interested in mentoring in your area.

Are you in need of a mentor?

If you want helpful advice, direction in your developing career or just more information on how to hone your hand therapy skills, please contact vicepresident@tsht.org.  Please indicate your city of practice, preferred contact method (email, phone, etc.) and specifics on what you expect from a mentoring relationship.

We will try to find the best fit for each individual and put you in contact with each other.
