With Artificial Intelligence’s (AI) revolutionary role in the world today, overseas qualified physiotherapists are reminded that the use of AI to pass the Council's assessments could be deemed as cheating as per our Misconduct Policy.
In this digital age, one of the most revolutionary advancements that has taken centre stage is Artificial Intelligence (AI). With its potential to transform industries and streamline processes, AI is being considered by many organisations including the Council. As a forward-looking and innovation-focused organisation, the Council celebrates the role of AI and how it could benefit healthcare and impact lives globally.
Using AI for assessments
While the Council celebrates AI for its immense benefits, it is also crucial that overseas qualified physiotherapists do not engage in activities that could lead to unfair advantage or cheating, particularly in the context of using AI to complete the Council’s several assessments. As the appointed accreditation and assessment authority for physiotherapy in Australia, the Council maintains zero tolerance towards any form of misconduct, cheating or unethical behaviour.
Candidates who engage in misconduct compromise the integrity of the assessment process and undermine the Council’s trust. Misconduct also directly impacts the creditability of the candidates, with far-reaching consequences for their professional reputation.
The Council will hold candidates accountable, as we emphasise the importance of maintaining the highest standards of integrity and professionalism. Adhering to the Misconduct Policy as a Council candidate is vital, demonstrating a commitment to ethical conduct, honesty, and fairness. Upholding these values not only safeguards the integrity of the assessment process but also reflects the candidate's commitment and dedication towards serving the healthcare needs of the community as an Australian physiotherapist.
