The RMH Physiotherapy Department provides an extensive education program for physiotherapists across all Grades and clinical streams.
For early career clinicians, we offer a monthly Grade One learning program, weekend training, journal club and departmental in-services to support and develop the skills of the physiotherapist.
All grade ones have a direct supervisor in their learning environment. Supervision is highly valued in the physiotherapy department and involves formal and informal supervision suited to individual needs. Grade one staff are also part of a buddy program to support peer learning.
