SA PT registration
Dear collegue,
I am a foreign physiotherapist (went to school in Holland). I have recieved recognition from SAQA, but would also like to become a registered physio. I am not presently working as a physio, but would like to do physio work (legally if possible).
I read the website, which noted that 2 years of community service is required...does this include internship time? Does the community service have to be in SA? Is this the only way to register? Is there any other info you can offer about registration? Any info would be appreciated.
