The Mentor Program

Why

 

We ove integrating our musculoskeletal knowledge and skills with our Women’s health knowledge and skills, ultimately for the benefit of women.


Luckily for women, Women’s health as a sub specialty of physiotherapy is becoming more and more popular. Unfortunately, for physiotherapists wanting to establish a career in Women’s health physiotherapy there is not yet a clear, well established pathway.


At The Physiotherapy Clinic (TPC) we have a very structured clinical education program to ensure our team gain the knowledge and skills needed to reach their potential and progress their career. Whilst we would love to employ everyone that is obviously not possible.

This is why we have created the Mentor Program.

Who

Joelene Murdoch, Physiotherapist and Director of TPC has been running small version of the program for a few years now, but with the help of our great team is able to expand opportunities and create more space for keen Physiotherapists to join. A few team members from TPC have now joined Jo in rolling out this program. The mentor team members are Jo, Tamara Woods and Victoria Watson. You can click on their pictures to read their full bios.


There will be a lot of thought put into which mentee goes with which mentor. This will be at the discretion of The Physiotherapy Clinic. We will take into account logistics and matching times that suite both mentee and mentor. In addition, learning styles and level of experience will be catered for. The mentor team have been working together for a long time and thus understand each other’s learning and teaching styles well.
 

How

We will need to know a bit about you and no doubt you will want to know a bit more about us. Therefore, first things first we will do an introductory phone call with one of the mentors to discuss what it is that you are looking for, what you are interested in learning and gauge what level you are currently at. Then the mentor and mentee can decide on a program they both think will meet the mentees needs and be the best fit for them. 

Your mentor sessions include monthly face to face, 90 minute sessions with your mentor. You will have email access to your mentor, a time will be negotiated between mentee and mentor with regards to answering your questions.

You can start these at any time throughout the year pending space in our mentors diaries. 

If coming to Bondi Junction or Cammeray will be tricky for you, send us an email as we do have a few mentees that are regional and even one international group.
