Mentor ship & Coaching

PHRC Cofounders Elizabeth Akincilar and Stephanie Prendergast offer Clinical and Business Mentorship virtually. These sessions are available to any professional interested in meeting with us to discuss pelvic health clinical concerns and/or pelvic health business development and management.
We understand the challenges that professionals face trying to learn all there is to know about pelvic health and running a pelvic health business. We also know that there are many groups and services available to help, but sometimes people need a more individualized approach with specialized attention given to your particular questions and needs. We have been working as pelvic floor physical therapists for 20 years and we have been business owners for 15. Chances are, whatever it is that you are struggling with, we have been there and we can help.

One-on-One Clinical Mentorship

To be a successful pelvic floor physical therapist, not only do we have to have a comprehensive understanding of the musculoskeletal system, but also many other systems in the body, including the urinary, reproductive, colorectal, nervous, and endocrine systems. We also need to be familiar with and understand the pharmacological, surgical, and pain management treatment interventions that many of our patients undergo. To top it all off, we also have to be familiar and comfortable with the psychosocial aspects of pelvic health and know when and who to refer our patients to for these services. A physical therapist who is new to the field may wonder how they will ever feel confident in all these aspects of pelvic health to become a successful pelvic floor physical therapist. A seasoned pelvic floor physical therapist may feel very confident in most of these aspects of pelvic health but may feel they need more education in specific areas.

For both the new and the seasoned pelvic floor physical therapist, the need is the same. Mentorship. Continuing education courses are invaluable to learn new skills and really hone in on one’s existing skills. But one-on-one mentorship is something different. This sort of training is precisely what you, in particular, want and need, whether you’re new to the field, or have been in it for years and years. One-on-one mentorship is tailored to your exact needs, right now. Want to discuss one of your current complex pain patients that you’ve hit a plateau with? Need to discuss whether it makes sense to refer your patient to an interventional pain management specialist or back to their surgeon for a surgical consultation? Looking for tips on how to talk to a local physician colleague about suggesting a treatment for your patient? Whatever it is you need to discuss, we’re game. Whatever challenge you’re facing, chances are, we’ve been there too and have ideas for you on how to tackle it. Specializing in this field the last 20 years, both in the clinic and the classroom, has taught us how to navigate many of those tough questions we so often get from our colleagues. Let us help you troubleshoot those complex patient cases and navigate the particular challenges we often face in our field..

One-on-One Business Mentorship

In 2006 we quit our pelvic health jobs to open our own business. In that time we have grown from one office to 9. We hired, trained, and grew our team. We feel satisfied that every day we do our best to show up for our team, our patients, and the community. We take pride in our work and strive to consistently provide the highest quality of care to our patients, valuing the trust we have built with so many people. While many things have gone well we also have made a lot of mistakes. Some of those mistakes hurt more than others, but most importantly, we have learned from them. Business is dynamic. We’re constantly adjusting and making changes as we learn better and more efficient ways to get things done.
Although we didn’t know much about running a small business when we started this adventure together, we have gained a lot of experience and knowledge over the years. Running a successful medical practice is so much more than treating patients. So much more that I think many medical providers don’t even know the half of what they are getting themselves into when they embark on opening a practice. Whether it’s hiring and managing staff, or marketing your services, or learning basic accounting skills, as a small business owner, it often falls upon you to do everything. We want to help our colleagues not make the same mistakes we did. We want to share our knowledge and experience with you to make your practice more successful and less frustrating. Bring us your questions, your frustrations and your challenges. We look forward to working with you to help your practice reach its full potential!
