“I have attended 3 workshops sponsored by MSHT. I do not have my CHT, however, in spite of this, the MSHT board members have always welcomed me. I very much appreciate that all students and therapists are encouraged to attend.”
“Being new to the hand therapy community, the Michigan Society of Hand Therapists allows me to expand my clinical knowledge through evidence based courses incorporating the latest and most up to date practices. It also allows me opportunities to network with other clinicians in the state.”
"I have moved to Virginia and cannot find hand therapy courses that are as comprehensive as those offered by The Michigan Society of Hand Therapists. I will keep coming back.”
"MSHT continues to provide hand therapists with the most pertinent and highest quality conferences. I've never been disappointed. The board does a wonderful job!"
“I have been in the health care industry for over 30 years and have never enjoyed working with an organization more than the MSHT. Their meetings are well run and are always a great educational venue. As a businessman their organizational meetings are a great way to make new contacts at a reasonable price. I plan on attending future meetings until I retire or the MSHT disbands. ”
