This February 17-18, 2011, teachers, school owners and colleagues will join forces in San Francisco at the AMTA 2011 Schools Summit. Attendees will work together as they discover how to motivate staff, create online options for entry level massage students, update curriculum, successfully manage student clinics, and evaluate school accreditation options.
Why you should attend:
With the massage therapy profession and education in a period of rapid evolution, this year's Summit will encourage input on school-related issues and serve as a venue for frank, inclusive dialogue on how schools can flourish while effectively educating massage therapy students for successful and sustained practice. The Summit will include specific interest tracks for educators/teachers, massage school owners and administrators, as well as an open forum for attendees to share their school's successes
Highlights of this year's event:
The Opportunites and Challenges of Accreditation
• A panel presentation and discussion on the opportunities and challenges of moving all massage therapy schools to be USDE recognized and to meet the minimum, established accreditation standards.
• Further discussion on how schools can establish credentials that are portable and the resources necessary to accomplish this, how to attain the funding needed to become accredited, and the effect of mergers and acquisitions.
Creating Best Practices in Managing a Student Clinic
• Attendees of this small group, hands-on workshop will continue the work of documenting the best practices and benchmarks for managing a student clinic.
This year’s Schools Summit is being held at the serene and elegant Hotel Kabuki, a premier Japanese-style hotel.
