Updated assessment criteria for The Equivalence of Qualification – New Program

March 8th, 2018

AUSTRALIAN PHYSIOTHERAPY COUNCIL

The Equivalence of Qualification – New Program assessment criteria has been updated to align with the new Accreditation Standard for Australian entry-level physiotherapy practitioner programs.

The major difference in the new criteria is that it is less prescriptive regarding course duration and content, and more focused on the outcomes achieved by graduates.

From 1 July 2018, all Equivalence of Qualification – New Program assessment applications will be evaluated according to the new criteria.  More information on these can be found in the Fact Sheet here.
