What our Graduate physiotherapists have to say

What have been the biggest challenges working in private practice as a new graduate physiotherapist?

“The biggest challenges are clinical reasoning, knowing what to do, when and why.
It takes a long time to be really good at it.“

How has the team helped you during your first graduate year?

“The team has been amazing! The ongoing mentoring from Greg, the Practice Principal has been awesome.
His knowledge is second to none and his openness and willingness to share. The team has been incredible, always there to give a second opinion, to help if I’ve been unsure – stepping in to help out without having to really ask.”

What do you like most about working here as a graduate physiotherapist?

“The culture – it’s friendly and relaxed and we treat everyone like family. It’s a really nice place to come to work every day.

Also the hands-on approach to treatment, learning how the body works as a whole and understanding the problem and knowing what to do. You don’t get that if you don’t do hands-on treatment.
It’s been an amazing experience to kick-start my career.“

What have been the biggest challenges as a new graduate?

The biggest challenge would definitely be clinical reasoning when treating patients, learning how to transform what I have learned at university, into real practice.

How have the team helped you out during your first year?

Greg, the practice principal and the senior physios, Simon and Carol, have all mentored me which has helped me progress my learning and hands-on skills. If I have a tricky case, I can ask for their advice and they support me. Weekly team meetings and 1-on-1 sessions with Greg are fabulous – we establish and work on specific SMART goals. This has definitely helped accelerate my learning and become more confident in treating various patients.

What do you like most about working here?

The team is amazing, treating everyone as family. It’s tough becoming a physiotherapist!! However, everyone in the team is willing to provide support and feedback which helps you to become a more independent practitioner.

What have been the biggest challenges as a new graduate?

You come out of Uni with a brain full of knowledge but there are bits and pieces scattered everywhere. Being able to put the puzzle together, and understanding how the musculoskeletal system, neural system and biomechanics are all integrated, is a big challenge! Then applying this knowledge to the patient in front of you, when every individual is very different, is even harder.

How has the team helped you out during your first year?

The team is very supportive. Having weekly team meetings plus mentor sessions with Principal physiotherapist Greg, has been great to accelerate my learning. Senior physiotherapist Simon is also always around to happily discuss and explain anything at any time.

What do you like most about working here?

The emphasis is manual therapy and education for all patients in pain. This ensures they believe and understand that they will improve and can achieve their goals despite how they are feeling currently.

We look forward to hearing from you

What our Principal Mentor has to say

What are the biggest challenges for new graduates in private practice?

“The major challenge is putting the theory of physiotherapy into practice. They need to accelerate their hands-on manual therapy skills to complement their clinical reasoning. Also, they need to become direct and confident communicators to influence health behaviours.“

What is your approach to mentoring new graduates?

“An openness to sharing my knowledge and skills, starting with a broad perspective and narrowing to more complex anatomy, pathophysiology, assessment, diagnosis and treatment.
Providing ongoing support and feedback to become a confident, independent practitioner.”

What does the Graduate Program offer new grads?

“A collaborative approach to learning and growing. There is time to reflect on the assessment, diagnosis and treatment with your mentor. You will be challenged every day and finish with a buzz knowing what you have achieved.

We set our graduates up for success!“

We look forward to hearing from you
