Meet with a Director

Schedule a 15-minute conversation with one of the directors to learn if our program is a good match for you and to get your individual questions answered. We encourage you to attend an information session prior to scheduling a meeting. When contacting the director, offer three available times from Tuesday-Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The director will then send you a calendar invite with a Zoom link.

We will be attending other national and regional supervised practice forums throughout the coming months. Check back for additional opportunities!
