The below graphic outlines the key components of our physiotherapy and occupational therapy services we provide. As a Graduate Physiotherapist or Graduate Occupational Therapist at HealthStrong, these services will enable you to build your confidence and gain experience practicing in the field of your profession, with the support of Clinical Leads and seniors. In addition to that, you will be able to work collaboratively with your colleagues on many of the programs of care HealthStrong provides, which will equip you the opportunity to build upon the foundations of your skill-sets.

 

We have Graduate Physiotherapy and Graduate Occupational Therapy positions in metro and regional areas of VIC, NSW, QLD, WA and TAS, each state has multiple sites of work.

You will be primarily located at one or two sites, but at times may be required to work at another residential aged care facility in your region. This could be for several reasons including enabling senior support to occur, leave coverage at another site, and also to provide you the opportunity when you’re ready to progress further in your role, the opportunity to work within the community. Given the current COVID-19 climate, we will chat with you during the recruitment process in regards to areas you will be working in.

In addition, when the current travel restrictions ease, there will also be the opportunity to travel to other states and regions as appropriate to widen your experience.
