Your first job: #tipsfornewphysios

You’ve nearly finished your degree, you’ll be HCPC registered and it will soon be time to start your first job as a newly qualified physiotherapist.  Nervous?  Excited? Confused?

We’re hoping to once again harness the collective experience and enthusiasm on Twitter to give you lots of #tipsfornewphysios and help you on your way to a fantastic and rewarding career.

??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

#tipsfornewphysios

We’re going to approach this slightly differently – and we’d like you to start tweeting your #tipsfornewphysios straight away and keep posting your advice over the next few weeks.  Serious, motivating, irreverent (but always professional) – everything you think newly qualified physios should know as they start working as a physiotherapist.  We’re hoping to hear from patients, carers, physios, healthcare professionals, lecturers, managers – anyone who can share their advice.

We can’t claim this is an original idea – the hugely popular #tipsfornewdocs has been around for a couple of years and is really useful for physios too.

#physiotalk Monday 12th May 8-9pm

We’ll be holding a #physiotalk tweet chat on starting your first job on Monday 12th May 8-9pm (BST). Before and after the chat we’ll signpost to useful support and information and hopefully the chat transcript and summary will also be a useful resource.

D??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????iscussions will cover:

  • Preparing – what to do before you start
  • Making the most of your first few weeks/induction
  • First impressions
  • Reading and resources that can help
  • Tips for success, and any do’s and don’ts

Post-chat information

After a quiet start it got busy last night and there was lots of advice for physio students and newly qualified physios – which can be found in the chat transcript below.

There were also some volunteers for organising a regular physiotalk journal club- this is something we’ve been hoping to get of the ground for a while so we’ll be busy planning this over the next couple of weeks.  If you’re interested in hosting or blogging for physiotalk get in touch via Twitter or physiotalk@outlook.com.  Physiotalk is run in our spare time so we always welcome offers of help, and it’ great CPD!
