Professional Recognition

Upon successful accreditation of the programme by the Physiotherapists Board of the Supplementary Medical Professions Council, graduates will be qualified for practice as Registered Physiotherapists in Hong Kong. They may apply for full membership of the Hong Kong Physiotherapy Association, which is a member of the World Confederation for Physical Therapy (WCPT).

Career Prospects

A review from the Hong Kong Food and Health Bureau# reveals a huge shortage of practicing physiotherapists in Hong Kong. Registered Physiotherapists can work in the hospitals, rehabilitation centres, public and private health organizations, non-governmental organizations, private clinics, sports and fitness institutions, elderly homes, community centers, and special schools.
