New Graduate Programme

We love to introduce our new graduates to their working life as a physio in private practice and take pride in helping to shape their professional careers.

Our new graduates are mentored for two years by one of the practising clinical directors of Physiosouth and are provided with opportunities to work closely with a range of Allied Health providers including hand therapists, sports doctors, podiatrists, chiropractors, and some of Christchurch’s leading surgeons. New graduates are encouraged to work with sports teams and we have a medic training program.

All new graduates get a chance to work at Sports Clinic, our flagship multi-disciplinary clinic as part of the Saturday roster. We have a structured monthly education programme and graduates also participate in monthly interdisciplinary clinical meetings, offering broad exposure to the wider Physiosouth team and to our clinical partners and their various areas of expertise.

Experienced Physios

For experienced physios, we offer a range of treatment pathways, allowing you to select the best option for each individual to maximise your patients’ outcomes.  We have options for full and part-time work, including flexible working arrangements to suit your needs.

All of our physiotherapists participate in monthly interdisciplinary clinical meetings, ensuring interesting and relevant CPD as well as the opportunity to present and educate others in your areas of speciality.

Physiosouth is accredited with Immigration New Zealand under the Accredited Employer Work Visa scheme and may be able to assist you in obtaining a work visa to work in NZ. We have worked with a number of staff who have joined us from the UK and we’re confident in our ability to help you transition from working within the UK system to the NZ health system.
