In preparation for the APP program, we offer a Mentoring Program with the following features:
The Mentoring Program (MP) is open to people who have already applied and been accepted for the next class of APP.
Students in the MP meet as a group with a Mentor who is a faculty member of APP once every two weeks for a 45 minute educational experience.
Every few weeks, the Mentor will change, so that a student who is in the MP for very long will have an opportunity to acquaint themselves with teaching or clinical approaches of several faculty members.
Activities at Mentoring sessions are likely to vary but will often include such things as discussion of a reading assignment, or discussion of clinical case material brought by a student for presentation to the group.
Cost: The charge will be $100 per month during the time a student is enrolled in the Mentoring Program. Funds paid for the Mentoring Program can be applied to second semester tuition in the first year of the program. For instance, a student who enrolls in the Mentoring Program in November will receive the opportunity to participate in about 20 Mentoring sessions, will pay $1000 over the course of 10 months, will then pay the first semester's tuition in full, and will be regarded as having already paid $1000 toward the second semester's tuition.
Our purpose is to provide a preparatory educational experience for students who want to be in the next APP class even while we are waiting for enough applicants to start a new class.
