Additional Information About Your Center

Our SPs go above and beyond the call of their roles, they have taken ownership of their program and made their own homegrown workshops directly from their niches, experiences, and knowledge with topics such as role backstory, feedback, META (removing your role), role preparation and introduction to clinical roles. Our SPs are highly supportive of one another as well as supportive of the program they have fully immersed themselves in.
