    Question Internship in Australia, full time (doing life)

    Add your physio job on Physiobob.com
    Hi everyone!
    Im currently studying physiotherapy at Charles University in Czech Republic, Prague. The course is accepted by the Norwegian government (Im a Norwegian studying abroad).

    The course is 3 years (University) + 1 year internship at a clinic (public or private) with 100% working position, paying 80% of a normal physiotherapy salary.
    That is the required way to go to be a certified physiotherapist in Norway.

    I have a love for other cultures and love to live in other countries. I have a personal trainer course from Florida and now studying in Czech Republic.

    My question to you is:

    Will it be possible for me to apply for a 80% paid internship (working full time) somewhere in Australia (doesnt matter where). Will they accept me? I know Norway accept others, even tho there is crazy hard to find work here!

      Does Australia have the same "internship" as we do have here in Norway?

      Re: Internship in Australia, full time (doing life)

      Hi,
      in Australia, clinical student placements (internships) are integrated into a 4 year degree.
      So, there are no year long internships as such. Also, the clinical placements are unpaid, as they contribute to your learning.
      I have, however, no idea, whether Australia would accept Physio Students for an internship as an exception. Best is to write to them directly and ask.
      Contact Us

      Cannot give you great hopes though that you will be paid.
      Good luck,
      Fyzzio
