Have you done some PD this year?

Have you done some PD this year?


MSOT wants to continue to give back to the membership and support members in their professional development.

The PD bursary was created to help members fund their professional development. The bursary is retroactive for PD done last year (between March 1, 2016 and February 28, 2017). It is a $200 bursary meant to supplement other funding. Because it is drawn randomly it is important to submit your application to the MSOT office by March 1st 2017. It is a great opportunity to receive a little extra support for the PD that you have attended.   Please see below for the description and criteria for the award. The application is on-line at most.mb.ca.
