Are you finding it difficult to recruit experienced hand therapists for your clinic? You're not alone. Many clinic owners are facing similar challenges, as the demand for hand therapy services continues to grow, while the pool of experienced hand therapists remains limited.

But what if we told you that early career therapists could be the solution you've been looking for? By employing and investing in the training of early career therapists, you can build a team that is aligned with your clinic's philosophy and approach, and provide ongoing mentorship and support to help them grow into successful hand therapists.

At our clinic, we've had great success with this approach – but from experience also know that training a new therapist is both complex and time consuming. Over the past 7 years we’ve built and refined our fellowship program and can now offer it to other clinics through our online training platform. Our program provides early career therapists with the knowledge and tools they need to be successful in their role, while also ensuring they receive ongoing support and mentorship from experienced hand therapists. By investing in our team members in this way, we've been able to build a strong and successful hand therapy team that is dedicated to providing high-quality care to our patients.

Save time and money by outsourcing hand therapy training for your team and have the confidence that your therapists will receive world-class training across a broad field of hand therapy topics and techniques.

So if you're struggling to find experienced hand therapists, please consider the Postgraduate Fellowship in Hand Therapy program. Think about investing in the training and development of early career therapists, and see how this approach can help you build a strong and successful hand therapy team.
