"Being a new hand therapist in a clinic alone can be difficult and overwhelming. Joining the fellowship was the best decision I made. The content is top-notch and gives you all the tools necessary to succeed. Additionally, Mirella is the greatest mentor I could have asked for. She is so knowledgeable and really wants all her students to succeed.  I would recommend this fellowship as a must-have for anyone who is driven to succeed in being a specialist in upper extremity therapy."
