Do you want to:
- join a national provider of Exercise Physiology services that still operates as an agile, innovative, caring, small business?
- be part of a company where you’re encouraged to be an industry leading EP, an expert, the “go-to person”?
- be paid to train and develop your EP skills and your personal brand
- be able to provide evidence-based rehabilitation including mindfulness, sleep hygiene, nutritional advice, dietary planning, activity tracking, cognitive retraining, neurological training, hydrotherapy and more.
Then here’s some more info to help you realise why you should be joining us:
What experience do I need?
Our EP’s all have at least 3 years’ experience and have amazing knowledge of the work performed in the insurance settings either as a Rehab Provider, Insurer, Employer or Treatment Provider, however, we love training newcomers to the space including New Grads!
How many patients will I look after?
As a contracting EP you’ll be able to set your limit with how many cases you want to take, let us know what suits you. As full time employees our EPs will typically have patient loads of 20-25 clients or up to 30hrs of patient contact per week.
Will I be performing workplace assessments or devising RTW Plans?
No but our EPs all have the knowledge and know-how to provide the necessary information which empowers Rehab Providers, GPs and Insurers to do these.
Will I perform Case Conferences?
Yes, visiting GPs to relay the information from our programs and empower their decision making is a key aspect of our service.
If I’m a Contractor to Specialised Health, can I still participate in training?
Yes, we love helping our staff develop themselves and become industry leading health professionals. Plus we pay all contractors 50% of their hourly rate to participate in training / PD courses and deliver what they learnt as an inservice to all of our other EP’s.
How many clinics / practices does Specialised Health have?
None. We are a completely remote and mobile EP company. We provide supervised sessions for clients in their local gym, at their home, a local hydro facility, park, mountain, pool, bike track, beach etc etc. Travelling is therefore part of your job, however, we try to keep you within a 30min radius from your home.
Is every case about return to work?
No. However, given the evidence around the health benefits of returning to work as early as possible, RTW will always be a goal of any of our rehab programs where it’s appropriate. Given the nature of the clients we see though unfortunately returning to work is not always an option and in many cases we are called upon to improve quality of life only and improve the performance of ADL tasks.
What conditions will I frequently work with?
Musculoskeletal rehabilitation will always form a big part of what we do, however, a significant focus of our work is on clients with cancer, chronic fatigue or mental health conditions. In addition, our EPs also receive referrals for stroke, brain injuries, neurodegenerative conditions, metabolic conditions, cardiac conditions and more.
