HOW WE TURNED OUR PHYSIO CAREERS AROUND AND WHAT IT MEANS FOR YOU
WE'RE JULIA AND JOELLE, FOUNDERS OF PT MENTORS, AND THIS IS OUR STORY
We met in 2012 at the McMaster Contemporary Medical Acupuncture Program and have been practicing physiotherapy for 12+ years. When we started teaching healthcare practitioners, we quickly realized two things: (1) there is a huge gap between skills that are needed to practice effectively versus what is actually taught in school and (2) the Neurofunctional Approach taught within the McMaster Contemporary Medical Acupuncture Program could provide a way to break out of the “standard” approach that practitioners are taught.
We started offering tutorials to give health care practitioners the confidence, knowledge and experience they needed to use their education to maximum efficacy – and we wanted to provide graduates access to mentorship, since we had received so much value from mentors throughout our careers.
After years of honing our program, PT Mentors was created in 2017 to bridge the gap between new graduates and practitioners of physiotherapy by creating a like-minded community that supports the growth of one another, built around the neurofunctional model of physiotherapy.
