HTCC Mentoring Section

The mission of the Hand Therapy Certification Commission, Inc. (HTCC) is to support a high level of competence in hand therapy practice and to advance the specialty through a formal credentialing process.  HTCC envisions a time when every qualified therapist who treats hand patients will become a Certified Hand Therapist. With this in mind, we have created this section to be used by occupational therapists and physical therapists seeking to gain the advanced knowledge and clinical skills required for the specialty of hand therapy. It is our hope that this section will promote professional development through a mentoring relationship between therapists, facilitate learning and to assist in the preparation of the Hand Therapy Certification examination.
