Our New Grad Program

Most of our clinics are located in regional Australia, this brings with it some interesting opportunities and challenges. As a new grad, you may ask yourself, why should I choose to work in a regional community? Well, here are some of the best reasons to make the regional relocation.

  • The communities you’ll work in, and the clients you treat, seek education. Your voice matters and they want you to be a part of their health journey. 
  • We can deliver quality care in the growing area of MSK.
  • Throughout COVID-19 physiotherapy was deemed to be essential, you’re able to work and continue your job as usual.
