Mentorship Model

The mentorship model is a mentor-led clinical experience that provides a focused introduction to the Canadian workplace environment. It allows the IEPT, through both observation and participation, to gain knowledge of and exposure to the role and scope of practice of a physiotherapist, and the continuum of care within the Alberta health system.

A mentor is a role model who guides the student's learning, providing feedback and instruction along the way. Evaluation of the student is based on mentor confirmation of completion of a student developed learning plan.
