What have our Graduate Program Physio’s got to say about the program?
“I felt like I was taken under the wing of PGSW – supported and part of the PGSW team. I am so grateful for the learning opportunities I have been provided with. I love that I am always encouraged to keep improving myself as a physio. Regular PD and education sessions – this is a must!! Not only did I learn heaps but it also helped to build confidence and reassured me that I was doing the right thing etc!! I loved being encouraged to do courses that interest me.
I love the support provided in the early stages, ensuring that we have enough time during and after the appointments so we can deliver the best care & write our notes without becoming too overwhelmed and stressed!”
“Janet made herself available in the early days of my career for any questions and all physios were approachable to ask questions. The mentoring sessions were so valuable, and it was nice to hear from real life experiences rather than just watching a lecture/video”
“So far the program has beyond what I could have expected. I didn’t expect to have so much support and nurturing after moving into a new town and workplace. Slack has also provided an outlet for me to ask questions and get answers/opinions from all the physios which has been great.”
“Whenever I’m asked about my job, I tell people I’ve hit the jackpot! The level that everyone cares about how you are going personally and professionally I think is something very rare to find. I love how I feel like I’m part of a family! And I’m always supported to follow my passions. I genuinely love coming to work each day.”
This position provides a variety of experiences including musculoskeletal, sports injuries, exercise rehab, Clinical Pilates, and hydrotherapy. Opportunities also exist in paediatrics, Women’s health, and corporate health, cancer rehabilitation, cardiorespiratory as well as the opportunity to explore your areas of interest.
You will be responsible for:
- Independently managing clients (assessment, diagnosis, planning and treatment), with the view to a full-time load of between 30-38 hours/week as set by you (with appropriate support when required).
- Taking Clinical Exercise Classes and other exercise-based programs.
- Communicating with any relevant parties (GPs, specialists, insurance companies, etc)
- Participating in activities to attract and retain our valued clients.
- Conducting activities such as community seminars, regular staff in-services and practice-based non-clinical activities.
You will be excited about building something of significance and influence, passionate about developing relationships with clients and contributing to a culture of fun, excitement and community!
The selected candidate will be handsomely rewarded with above-award salary, and a bunch of potential extra perks, such as flexible work hours.
Our tailored position will also provide monthly one to one mentoring with our award-winning leader, regular in-service programs including surgeons and expert health professionals, and a generous professional development allowance for external courses.
You will be constantly surrounded by experienced physiotherapists with a combined total of over 100 years of clinical private practice experience and an environment that will challenge and educate you with practical experience, while being fun and supportive.
At the end of your Graduate Program you will be presented with a certificate of completion and competencies, which looks awesome on your resume!
Our clinic is fresh and our approach is modern – you will be a part of a team that is more ‘family’ than ‘staff’, and our ethos is progressive and energising.
