Physiotherapy Job Summary:
Proactive Physiotherapy is looking to recruit physiotherapists who’d like the opportunity to advance their career through a structured programme in a stimulating environment designed to take your development to a new level.
Proactive Physiotherapy is a general MSK clinic and also powers 3 niche clinics: Cairns Headache and Migraine Clinic, Cairns Pelvic Health Clinic and Cairns Paediatric Clinic. Allowing specialisation and structured learning in these fields if desired.
At Proactive we have a significant MSK focus with Manual Therapy and exercise prescription being an essential component for maximising patient outcomes and with this in mind we’ve developed a comprehensive CPD program for those starting out in private practice, along with good PPD allowances and incentives for more senior clinicians. CPD is an essential part of Proactive as we want to maximise patient outcomes in every single session.
We are consistently keeping up to date with international trends and technologies that can help us deliver outstanding service to our patients. We have a strong focus on taking our patients to new levels of health and fitness. Through the use of advanced Biomechanical screening we can identify underlying issues and then tailor individualised programs to not only correct contributing factors but also enhance performance, whether it is for an athlete, weekend warrior or senior citizen.
Clinical reasoning is the foundation of all treatment and within this exercise prescription is an integral part, understanding how to prescribe individualised exercises with the right progressions, at the right time, is critical to patient outcomes. Our CPD program ensures you learn these skills in a supportive environment.
We use the most appropriate exercise prescription that fits the patient from clinical pilates and functional training through to return to sports programs and everything between throughout all age groups.
As a new graduate if you maintain an openness to learning, you will develop skills at an accelerated pace. Our accelerated learning program for new graduates covers areas like manual therapy and exercise prescription, but also communication and leadership skills which gives a well round package to working in private practice.
For a senior clinician we aim to develop a hunger for progressive clinical development, and this is important regardless of how long you’ve been in the profession.
We are looking to recruit physiotherapists who are open and coachable, passionate and enthusiastic and who understand the importance of the progressive changes within our field and are genuinely excited about this new era of physiotherapy we are leading into.
We also have the international private practice grad program that allows our physios to experience overseas employment to be at the forefront of our profession and what is happening in some of the best practices around the world.
Cairns is in the tropical north of Australia, with the incredible year round warm weather allowing an active outdoor lifestyle. The great Barrier Reef and Daintree rain forests are at our doorstep. Direct affordable airfares to Asia for short duration holidays also make it a great location for travel
