What is involved in Physio Specialisation?
Specialisation in Sport and Exercise Physiotherapy is via The Australian College of Physiotherapists.
Entry Level Physiotherapists get a Degree such as a Bachelor of Physiotherapy which is normally a four year degree from a University. After working and gaining experience, A Masters of Sports Physiotherapy which is normally at least a two year degree is completed at a University. After gaining a Masters degree and sitting an exam a Physiotherapist can progress to being a titled Sport and Exercise Physiotherapist or Tier two.
Titled Sports Physiotherapists can then apply to be accepted onto the Australian College of Physiotherapists training programme which is a challenging two year programme with a facilitator that culminates in a weekend of intensive examinations.
The formal description of the Specialisation process can be found on the APA website.
