ACAPT’s Research-Intensive Programs in Physical Therapy (RIPPT) promotes academic excellence by strengthening the community of research-intensive physical therapy programs in ACAPT. Individual members of ACAPT member institutions can join RIPPT for free.
The RIPPT seminar series is a monthly research-focused webinar that provides an interactive forum on topics of interest to the community of researchers in physical therapy and rehabilitation related fields.
This month’s 60-minute seminar comes to you by the faculty from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The presenters include the program director, faculty (1 junior ranked, 2 senior ranked), and a Ph.D. student. They will present and share their perspectives on:
- What is the director’s role with mentorship, starting with faculty recruitment and onboarding?
- What are the roles and responsibilities of an effective mentorship committee?
- How to incorporate an individual development plan (IDP) in your mentoring practice?
The presentation will be followed by an open discussion amongst participants.
