ASPE 2014: Learn more about GTA/MUTA
By: Kat Wentworth
It is that time again! The ASPE annual conference is upon us and once again GTA/MUTA programming will be well represented. The GTA/MUTA SIG wants ASPE members to have a sneak preview of all the wonderful GTA/MUTA programming happening at the conference.
Sunday morning is your first opportunity to learn more about GTA/MUTA.
8:30 am – “Advanced Practice in Gynecological and Urogenital Exam Instructions and Practicum”
- This is a phenomenal pre-conference workshop that has been well received in the past. It provides managers and administrators with an opportunity to experience the GTA/MUTA practicum from the students’ point of view.
