Owl Practice Member Benefit

owlOwl Practice is Canada’s comprehensive practice management solution for psychologists in private practice.

We’ve worked with Owl to create a benefit for MPS members when they purchase the Owl service. Specifically, MPS members are eligible to receive their FIRST MONTH FREE.
This benefit has been available to Ontario Psychological Association members and now will be available to our members as well.
For those of you not familiar with Owl, below is an overview of how they can help clinicians in private practice to save time, get organized and see more clients.  You can also visit their website here:  www.owlpractice.ca
Please remember to mention that you’re an MPS member to take advantage of the new member benefit.
OWL Practice has been very responsive and helpful and I am confident that they would be pleased to answer your questions and facilitate your receiving this benefit.  Feel free to contact me as well if you wish to discuss this new benefit.  See additional information below, as well.
