Emerging Leaders Scholarship Program
The Myodetox Emerging Leaders Scholarship Program exists to support and develop the leaders of the future in the healthcare industry, with an immediate focus on supporting students from the Black community and a long-term vision of supporting students from the wider BIPOC community.
Our goal is to make our profession as diverse as the society we serve and to empower students with the skills and mindsets to become champions of wellness within their local communities.
Through a combination of $2,000 of financial support towards tuition and hands-on mentorship from business and clinical leaders at Myodetox, graduates of the six-month Emerging Leaders program will be well-positioned to create impact and positive change in their community from Day one of their careers. For this first cohort this program is open to Black students who have been accepted or are currently attending physical therapy or chiropractic programs within the United States or Canada. Five students will be accepted in this first cohort.
Throughout the six-month program, successful applicants will work with the various mentors in the program on the following topics:
The Black Experience in Healthcare
Roundtable discussion with healthcare industry leaders from the Black community sharing their insights and experiences as they navigated the challenges of race in an underrepresented space.
Critical Thinking in Clinical Outcomes
