How it works - a summary
1 DevelopingPhysio refines the teaching module
2 Your community chooses which modules you need and selects the students to learn the skills.
3 Qualified physio travels to your community to teach the skills
On completion of step 3, the student will take an exam and, provided this is passed, move directly into active use of the module in the community. Feedback is also given to DevelopingPhysio at this point to check if further refinement is needed.
