What is the ‘Professional Success Series?’
This term, we will be continuing the SHEA Professional Success Series (SPSS) that was so successful last year! This is a series of events focusing on a very broad range of topics that will contribute greatly to your professional and personal development.
- We will hear from patients who have been affected by different disorders, professionals from the community, and gain skills that will help in your personal and professional lives.
- Upon completion of this series, you will receive a certificate that will state the events you have attended (even if you only attended one!). Add this to your professional portfolio!
- For each SPSS event you attend, you will get an entry to a final year-end draw for a prize. Every time you attend an event, you will increase your odds of winning!
If you have any questions about this series, please email us: email@example.com
