I have a girlfriend who is close to being a fully certified and licensed physiotherapist with a masters degree in Texas, USA. How difficult would it be for her to get a job in B.C. Canada? If there's a process, how difficult would it be?

May I ask what program she's close to finishing in Texas? I didn't know there were any Masters programs still around in those parts...

I believe its exercise physiology.
Any ideas? Is it absolutely unheard of to have an American trained physiotherapist working in Canada?

I think irrespective for the degree she has...she will need to acquire license through examination (theoretical and practical). How difficult?..depends upon how her studies were in America vs that of in Canada

A Masters in Exercise Physiology makes a Physical Therapist not. To my knowledge, one with a Masters in Exercise Physiology is not eligible to sit for the examination by the Canadian Alliance of Physiotherapy Regulators. With that said, a US graduate from an accredited Physical Therapy program may.

Sorry she's done her physical therapy program, this is just something else she's doing.

But thanks! Seems she should be okay.
