    Dear HTM Professional,

     

    Due to COVID-19 restrictions here in Minnesota, our students are not able to complete their internship the traditional way. They usually spend 120 hours in a hospital system working alongside other HTM professionals. All the systems in MN are restricting any students from being onsite. With no end in sight, we need to move to alternate plans. This is where you come in. I am looking for a diverse cross section of HTM professionals who would be willing to meet with these students (8 max) on a one to one basis via a phone call, Zoom or any other means and talk about your experiences and answer any questions they might have. It does not matter where you are located or how much experience you have, it would all add the overall experience they would receive.

     

    If you are willing to help us out with this, please send me an email and I can get the information from you on how the student may initiate contact with you.

     

    I appreciate your consideration.

    Travis,

    I'd be happy to participate and help. Please email me at dmcgeary@aami.org and we can work out the details. We will get your students (and all the HTM students) through this.
