Learn the Skills Private Practice Owners Want You To Know Now

The industry of physiotherapy is changing and we are seeing more and more graduates stepping into a private practice role as their first job. It is a competitive job market to secure the ideal graduate position for the best start to your physiotherapy career. You need to have an edge over your fellow graduates that makes you stand out as a prospective private practitioner.

All graduates have a baseline level of knowledge and clinical skills, but it will be what you know for a private practice business that will get you that job. This will make you stand out from the many graduates applying for private practice positions and give you the choice of employers to start your career.

This course is delivered with:

  • 6 online content modules to learn at your own pace
  • Virtual Workshop in the comfort of your home.

On completion of the program you will receive a Certificate of Completion and registration on our Physiomentor Recruit Hub.

The Recruit Hub aims to network successful Physiomentor trained students with affiliated private practice owners that are interested in employing a new graduate in their business and have implemented the structured Physiomentor Graduate Development Program.

Get a great start to your career with a great job that will further your learning and development.

About Your Mentor

Mellissa Salmond

Mellissa is an experienced, musculoskeletal, generalist physiotherapist. Her generalist skills are acquired from working in the public hospital and aged care system, internationally, in the mining sector and for the last 10 years as a private practice business owner.

Whilst Mellissa is a business owner herself she found providing training, development and mentoring to graduates in private practice very time consuming and this was reflected in the business revenue, due to her having to step away from her own patient load to dedicate the time to the graduates.

She went searching for some type of program or ability to outsource this role to help with training graduates in a private practice setting but was unsuccessful on her search. There are many exceptional self directed, online resources to access, however none of them were specifically targeting graduates in private practice with a focus on business and clinical development. 

She decided to create a solution to her own problem and developed Physiomentor, a business designed for private practice business owners wanting and needing to outsource the training of new graduates in private practice to be profitable in business and clinically exceptional for private practice.

Mellissa will work with your graduate to fast track their development in your business and create a clinician your clients will be lining up to see.
