Most graduates have had little exposure to a physiotherapy private practice prior to graduation and majority do not feel ready for working in a private practice. Also, physiotherapy private practice owners are reluctant to hire graduates into their businesses as they also feel they are lacking in fundamental skills that are required to succeed in private practice.

These skills include:

- Creating a recurrent clientele and retaining clients to fulfil treatment and rehabilitation plans.

- Business skills to sell and market in a private practice.

- Streamlined clinical assessments for private practice.

- Time Management to survive in a busy environment.

- Customer service skills for business physiotherapy.

Student Course Feedback

I found this course very insightful and gave me so much knowledge surrounding private practice physiotherapy. I feel I will be one step ahead of other graduates commencing their positions and will hit the ground running.

This course covered topics which have not been mentioned at University at all. The reality that working in private practice is so much more than just knowing your content became very evident, but was presented in such a helpful and motivating way. Melissa did a great job of sharing what it means to work for a business in the most helpful way possible, couldn't have been happier at the end of it.

Must do course for all graduate Physios transitioning to Private Practice.

It was an interactive, well-planned and a very beneficial course for anyone looking to work in private practice. It is like learning a whole new world away from what is the focus in University and teaches you valuable communication skills, differential diagnosis, streamlining sessions and time management tools. Mellissa is very helpful in answering questions and guiding you through important topics for private practice. Definitely recommend the course to anyone who studies physiotherapy!

Very valuable, the stuff they don't teach you at uni that you would absolutely want to know before starting work in private practice

I now have a better understanding about what to expect going into private practise and know what to look for before I sign a contract with a prospective employer. I learnt a few tips and tricks about how to provide each customer with a holistic experience and learnt some important information about how private practices operate.
