The Australian Physiotherapy Council is the best pathway for international physiotherapists to join the high-quality physiotherapy profession in Australia.

As the guardian of the profession, the Council’s assessment pathways prioritise the safe and effective treatment of the Australian public.

Our assessment journey validates each internationally qualified physiotherapist, enabling them to step confidently into the Australian healthcare system, having familiarised themselves with the Australian standards of physiotherapy practice.

The integrity of the Council’s assessment pathways provides confidence to Australian employers of physiotherapists that international physiotherapists are safe and effective to practice in a variety of clinical settings.

The Council strongly encourages internationally qualified physiotherapists to undertake the Australian assessment pathways towards General Registration. Pathways other than the Council’s approved assessment pathways could impact your employment opportunities in Australia.

The Australian community expects that all physiotherapists can demonstrate how they meet the Australian standards of physiotherapy.
