Mentorship Program

The Department of Physical Therapy Mentorship Program is dedicated to connecting graduates of the program with final year students through instructive and meaningful activities. Through nurturing relationships between mentors and mentees, students are inspired, supported, and engaged with their community. While engaging with the department and sharing their knowledge, experience and insights with final year students, graduates support students as they transition from student to Physical Therapist.

​​​​​​There are three main components to this program:

  1. Speed Mentorship Event (held in March of each year)
  2. Mentor-Mentee Match (held between March – January of each year)
  3. A University of Toronto wide mentorship recognition event hosted by the Division of University Advancement to thank mentors for their dedication to our students.
