MSHA Mentoring Young Professionals (MMYP)

The project titled, MSHA Mentoring Young Professionals program (MMYP) is intended to nurture our graduate students and entry-level professionals by cultivating the culture of mentoring. The purpose of MMYP is to provide mentoring services to graduate students as well as clinical fellows via web-based meetings, webinars, and face-to-face roundtable meetings at the Annual Convention.

            The MMYP will focus on the following objectives:

  1. Provide clinical consultations to mentees on a variety of current topics, as needed
  2. Provide research mentoring to graduate students by encouraging professional collaborations
  3. Encourage beginning professionals to continue with life-long learning by participating in research and pairing with graduate students in accomplishing research projects that address and inform clinical practice
  4. Enhance mentees’ understanding of the national, legislative, clinical, and research initiatives in advancing our profession
  5. Encourage mentees to connect with experts in programs via web communications and face-to-face meetings at the Annula Conventions
  6. Encourage graduate students to assume leadership positions by serving as MSHA board members, and by participating in the Missouri legislative processes


The MMYP section on the website will contain the following features stated below:

  1. MMYP application
  2. List of mentors with their areas of expertise
  3. A forum for “Connect with an Expert”
  4. An FAQ section for addressing necessary academic/professional topics
  5. Mentor-mentee pairs’ success stories
