CAOT’s mentorship program Mentorship On Demand (formerly entitled Momentum) allows individuals (“mentees”) to be matched with a mentor based on similar values, interests, and professional paths. The goal of this program is to assist occupational therapists to foster professional growth through guided reflective processes for both the mentor and the mentee. This experience is intended to open a new chapter in your professional and, often, personal life.

Who is this program appropriate for?

Mentees are: 

Mentors are: 

Recent graduates of occupational therapy programs 
Internationally educated occupational therapists 
Occupational therapists re-entering the workforce 
Occupational therapists transitioning into new roles

Seasoned occupational therapists that can share professional experience and help younger or less experienced occupational therapists with a career development path
