What do Physiotherapists do?

Physiotherapists assess patients and plan and carry out individually designed treatment programs to maintain, improve or restore physical functioning, alleviate pain and prevent physical dysfunctioning in patients.

How to become: Physiotherapists

You must have a university degree in physiotherapy and a period of supervised practical training.

To practise, you must be registered or licensed with the regulatory board in the province/territory where you'll work. You may also need to complete the Physiotherapy National Exam administered by the Alliance of Physiotherapy Regulatory Boards.

With experience and additional training, you may move up the ranks to become a manager such as director of physiotherapy.

Most recent entrants have an undergraduate university degree, and almost 1 in 10 has a graduate degree.
