Mentorship Program

“Leap Into Practice Mentorship Program” is an interactive and structured 8-week virtual Mentorship Program that seeks to connect practice owners (Mentors) with aspiring practice owners (Mentees) to ultimately help mentees determine if practice ownership is right for them and to embark on this goal with more confidence and preparation. The tangible “walk-away” will be a customized, self-developed business plan and up to 24 CE credit hours.

Mentors and Mentees must apply to be considered for the limited number of spots available. To apply, register to reserve a (free) Mentor or Mentee Application Ticket. The application period will open on March 1st and will close when the program is full. Selected applicants will be contacted on a rolling basis as applications are received with a program start date of August 2021. Applicants need not be AGD members, but CE hours will only be tracked for AGD members.

  • Once selected, Mentees will be invoiced a $500 fee for program enrollment
  • Selected Mentors will be enrolled in the program at no cost
  • Both Mentors and Mentees who are AGD members may earn up to 24 Self Instruction/Lecture CE Credits upon completion of the 8-week program. Masters are also eligible to earn up to 8 Service Hours.
