MSHA Mentoring Young Professionals (MMYP)

Call for Applications: MSHA Mentoring Young Professionals (MMYP) 2019-2020

The MSHA Mentoring Young Professionals (MMYP) Program 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 MSHA Convention. The MMYP focuses on the following objectives:

  • Provide clinical support to mentees, as needed.
  • Provide research mentoring to graduate students by encouraging professional collaborations.
  • 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.
  • Enhance mentees’ understanding of the national, legislative, clinical and research initiatives in advancing our profession.
  • Encourage mentees to connect with professional experts via web communications and face-to-face meetings at the MSHA Convention.
  • Encourage graduate students to assume state/national leadership positions.
