Zone 34 interships are designed to allow final year physio students and new graduate physiotherapists learn from physiotherapists with experience in elite sport and dance.

 

The transition from study to working in private practice and sport is challenging.  Our internships provide insight into working in private practice along with practical opportunity to supervise rehab programs and assist with injury management.

 

We offer two 4 month  internships at a time, loosely based around University trimesters.  Our clients range from professional and sub elite athletes, weekend warriors, and all ages from our amazing local community.

Since opening in 2017 Zone 34 has provided placement and training for Macquarie, Uni of Sydney, and UTS students physio students.

We enjoy training the next generation of physiotherapists.  Typical uni placements are constrained by the reality of private practice, with limits into the amount of practical experience that be gained.   That is why we have aligned out internships with Zone 34 small group rehab classes. Interns will have the opportunity to monitor, supervise and progress rehabilitation programs that have been initial set by our expert team.

We have a proven record of assisting new grad physio’s obtain work in private practice or gain sports coverage opportunities via our extensive network.
