Mar 27, 2019Full time
Do you have a positive persona that makes patients look forward to seeing you and reinstall confidence on the prognosis of their injury? Do you want to make real, meaningful impacts on your patient’s lives? Is your current workplace helping facilitate you to reach your career goals, or are you just a source of revenue for them? Do you pride yourself in finding the true cause of a patient’s pain and not just alleviating symptoms momentarily? Are you able to communicate with patients in such a way that they learn what is exactly required to get them back to their best? Are you able to connect and engage with people on a personal level (not just clinical skill level)? Do you love to learn, and are you committed to being part of a TEAM that puts the patient first, not professional ego? Are you flexible and open to change? Do you view the opportunity to learn as a privilege and not something that you should always be paid to do? We are a Physiotherapy clinic in Morningside, Brisbane, that is experiencing rapid growth.
