Mentorship Program


 
“Leap Into Practice Mentorship Program” is a hands-on, 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 participation credit hours.

Mentors and Mentees must apply to be considered for the limited number of spots available. To apply, register through eDropin to reserve a (free) Mentor or Mentee Application Ticket. The application period will open on March 1st and will close May 1st. Selected applicants will be notified of program enrollment early May, with a program start date of August 2021.
 

  • Once selected in May, Mentees will be invoiced a $500 fee to complete program enrollment
  • Selected Mentors will be enrolled in the program at no cost
  • Both Mentors and Mentees may earn up to 24 Self Instruction/Lecture CE Credits upon completion of the 8-week program
  • Masters are eligible to earn up to 8 Service Hours in addition to CE
  • Both Mentors and Mentees will receive an invitation to attend the Annual VAGD Award Gala in October 2021
