Selection and Pre-Interview Questionnaire

White arrow on orange circle You will receive an email from the College telling you that you have been selected for the screening interview. Each month a set number of physiotherapists are selected for this mandatory quality assurance activity.

White arrow on orange circle If you would like to request a deferral (delay your screening interview), please advise the College as soon as possible. You can request a deferral for your screening interview by contacting the Quality Assurance team who will consider your circumstances. Deferrals must meet certain criteria.

White arrow on orange circle The email will ask you to log into the PT Portal and complete a pre-interview questionnaire. The pre-interview questionnaire will ask for more details about your practice including your primary and secondary work site, and you will need to review and update your employment, contact and roster details.

This pre-interview questionnaire should take no more than 30 minutes to complete. The questions are not scored.

Take some time to review the answers and consider areas that might need more attention. As a reminder, the screening interview is designed as an opportunity for you to reflect on your practice.

Be sure to complete each step by the required date. Any emails you receive from the College will also tell you when things are due.
