Dr7 Physiotherapy has provided clinical placement for Notre Dame Students (Fremantle campus) for the past 10 years. Around 20 students each year will go through our clinic and gain valuable experience for their physiotherapy studies. The physio students work closely with our experienced physiotherapists and hydro-therapist on a daily basis to gain insight into patient treatment and management. “We wanted to help in any way possible to educate and teach the interns to better prepare them for the future”, as quoted by Ryan our head physiotherapist.

What an intern would learn from the internship:
Dr7 Physiotherapy and Podiatry has also taken in students internationally from other Physiotherapy schools. A student from Germany came to have an internship with us in 2016, staying with us for 3 months before returning back to Germany to begin her career.
We will always welcome students from local or international universities to come and undertake an internship with us. If we can accommodate students, we will do our best in showing them how a private physiotherapy and podiatry practice is operated.
