The Clinical Assessment is part of the Standard Assessment pathway and assesses the ability to apply clinical skills in a simulated environment.
It consists of three practical assessments – one each in musculoskeletal, neurological, and cardiorespiratory physiotherapy.
From 1st April 2019 onwards, the Clinical Assessments will be conducted in a simulated environment with standardised patients.
LOCATION: Council’s Simulation Lab – Level 3, 600 Victoria Street, Richmond, Victoria, Australia, 3121.
The candidates who opted for hospital based clinical assessments and applied for clinical assessments before 1st April 2019, will still be allocated to the hospital based assessments in their state of preference, where possible. All the hospital-based assessments will be completely phased out by the end of September 2019.
You must have adequate Professional Indemnity Insurance to cover your attendance of assessment sessions. Prior to the commencement of each session, you must produce a Certificate of Currency of Professional Indemnity Insurance for a minimum of $5 million. But we have great news…
