Physical and Occupational Therapists in Manila attend our orientation seminar in partnership with SRG Review Center


MANILA, Philippines — About 150 physical therapists (PTs) and occupational therapists (OTs) attended a seminar hosted by the premier review center for Physical Therapy in the Philippines — Sultan Review Group– in partnership with one of the top Fillipino-owned immigration consultancy firms in the country, WORLDCONNECT Consultancy Services, Inc.

The seminar was held on March 11, 3:00pm at SRG Review Center, 3/F Highland Lumber Building, #2213-2219, España Blvd., Sampaloc, Manila.

As the policy change that has closed the doors on Filipino PTs who wish to be registered physical therapists in the U.S. takes effect this January 2017, these healthcare professionals were more than happy to find out there are big opportunities waiting for them in New Zealand and Australia.


With jobs in health and social services like on a “long term skill shortage” in New Zealand, the said country has opened its doors to a lot of skilled migrants, particularly Physical Therapists.
