Long-term PPC trainees are required to complete at least 300 hours of combined didactic, clinical and leadership training work over 1-2 years. In most circumstances, trainees are provided stipend support and funding to attend a national conference. Less intensive medium-term traineeships being between 40 and 299 hours are also available.
Traineeships typically begin in August of each year; individualized traineeships with flexible start and end dates are also possible.
The training includes on-ine lectures and modules, in-person clinics and events, and leadership workshops and opportunites. Trainees are required to develop a capstone project under the supervision of his/her mentor.
