畢業後如何註冊

物理治療師管理委員會規定申請註冊人士,持有由物理治療監管機構認可的大專院校所頒授的物理治療基本學位。該學位必須經修讀不少於三年的全日制本科課程或不少於兩年的全日制研究生課程而取得,而有關課程大綱須經輔助醫療業管理局認可,當中包括至少 8 0 0 小時在督導下執行物理治療工作的臨床實習課。

如果有關課程大綱未能完全符合輔助醫療業管理局認可的要求,申請人將獲邀參加由物理治療師管理委員會舉辦的註冊考試。考試分為筆試及臨床評估,考生必須於筆試考獲及格後才會獲邀應考試評估。有關申請註冊詳情,可以在物理治療師管理委員會網頁查閱: www.smp-council.org.hk

In the United Kingdom the Health & Care Professions Council (HCPC)- http://www.hcpc-uk.org/ – is the regulator of physiotherapy services, and was set up to protect the public.

To do this, they maintain a register of health and care professionals who meet the standards for their physiotherapy training, professional skills, behaviour and health.You can apply for UK physiotherapy registration with the HCPC here: http://www.hcpc-uk.org/apply/

In Canada, physiotherapy is a regulated profession. To work as a physiotherapist, you must register with the regulatory body in the province or territory where you work. It is illegal to practise if you are not licensed or registered.

Only registered physiotherapists are eligible to use the terms “physiotherapist”, “physical therapist” and the professional designation “PT”.

The Canadian Alliance of Physiotherapy Regulators (CAPR) evaluates educational credentials and administers exams for competency on behalf of most of the provincial and territorial regulators.

Each provincial and territorial regulator may also have additional requirements before you can practise. CAPR provides information to the regulators on credentials and qualifications, and the regulators decide who can and who cannot receive a licence to practise.

Physiotherapists must be registered with the Physiotherapy Board of Australia, and meet the Board’s Registration Standards, in order to practise in Australia.

Physiotherapists who have become qualified outside of Australia and wish to apply for registration can find information on our overseas qualified physiotherapists page.

Approved programs of studyThe approved programs of study can be found on the Accreditation page.

Physiotherapists are professionally qualified with either a Diploma in Physiotherapy (pre-1991), a Bachelor of Physiotherapy, or a qualification from overseas approved by the Physiotherapy Board of New Zealand.

All physios practising in New Zealand are registered by the Physiotherapy Board of New Zealand and hold an Annual Practising Certificate (APC).

Visit the Board’s website to find out all about registration. Allow several months for the registration process, from the time you have provided all the required documentation to the Physiotherapy Board.

To become a physio you will need to study a health science-based four-year degree from one of the three New Zealand schools offering physiotherapy.
