About Us


Our mission

QualifiedPhysio is a project founded in 2015 to support physiotherapists through their early career and beyond. QP started by helping newly grads prepare for their first interviews and has now evolved to occupy a unique position in the field of physiotherapy; working alongside cherry-picked organisations and businesses that help us deliver on our vision.

Our core values: innovative, tailored, supportive.

Our work focuses on 3 main areas:

  • Help physios navigate through the different stages of their career and get where they want to be professionally – be it in a certain job, speciality or area;
  • Provide them with continuous, individualised support so they can remain and grow professionally in their current and future roles.
  • Bring new ideas to the profession and promote physiotherapy to other industries and the public by linking up with businesses and organisations that share our values.

We want to build a strong community of new-generation physios and HCPs who embrace change and are ready for the challenges of tomorrow’s healthcare system. Together, we're building Physios for the future.

We've also been working with clinics and organisations towards better recruitment, increased brand awareness, better exposure to the physio community and in finding ways to improve efficiency of their services. Click here to find out more.
