Registration is a legal process, aimed at protecting the public of New Zealand. The Board will grant registration to applicants who are considered competent and fit for registration.
To practise legally as a physiotherapist in New Zealand, you must be registered and hold a current Annual Practising certificate issued by the Physiotherapy Board.
The registration process varies depending on where you were educated, where you are currently registered to practise and which scope you wish to practise under.
