Physio salary
I am considering physio as a change of career, but it will have to be financially justified if I am to return to university for another 4 years full time.

What is the average salary of a physio in and out of private practice or partnership? I realise it can vary greatly.

How does community service currently work in terms of hours / years and salary?

I'd appreciate your answers as I am sure you have a broad knowledge on this topic!

Hi Veronica

Like any business it depends where you place yourself - I know physios who earn R5000 per month and one who earns R80 000 per month - but it depends how you structure what you do.
I would much rather you considered why you wanted to do the move, and if physio is the right place for you.
