Practice Advice Question

Question:

I have a Provisional Practice Certificate with the College. Can I use the title physiotherapist on a CV or business cards?

Answer:

No. Only people with an Independent Practice Certificate can use the title physiotherapist, physical therapist or PT. If you are holding a Provisional Practice Certificate you can use the titles Physiotherapy Resident, Physical Therapy Resident or PT Resident.

And if someone refers to you as a physiotherapist, be sure to make them aware that you are a PT Resident practicing under the supervision of a registered physiotherapist.
