Interested in the Buddy Mentorship Program?
The Annual Buddy Program’s goal, sponsored this year by the UBC Alumni Centre, pairs physiotherapists with physiotherapy students who share common professional interests for an informal hangout during the AM coffee break at the BC Physio Forum. This is a great opportunity to network, meet future colleagues and further engage in the physiotherapy profession. Participants will still be able to attend all scheduled events. Please indicate your interest by answering 'yes' to the Buddy Program question when you go to register. You will be contacted in early February with further details. Questions? Contact Trevor O'Malley, MPT Student at firstname.lastname@example.org.
