QualifiedPhysio is a new project launched in 2015 for motivated physiotherapists in the UK and beyond. Our main mission is to help kick-start physio careers while building a community of new-generation physios and HCPs who embrace change and are ready for the challenges of tomorrow’s healthcare system.
We want to bring new ideas to the profession and increase its awareness to other industries and the public. We work with physios of all backgrounds and experiences, universities, hospitals and clinics, as well as non-healthcare professionals and businesses to deliver on 3 key areas:
Head start: Helping newly qualified physios bridge the gap between university and employment and get the career start they really want through quality resources and bespoke advice and training.
Skill sharpener: Our take on the good old-CPD. Giving a much-needed facelift to continuous professional training, helping you select quality events and courses which are worth spending your time on, depending on your interests and experience.
Community: Providing a platform to bring together physios and other healthcare and non-healthcare professionals and organisations, generate ideas and help contribute to a healthy climate of change within the industry.
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.
