2015 APA Membership Categories and Fees
Our main membership category is 'Full-time Physiotherapist'. The majority of members will fall into this category.
Variations on the Physiotherapist category
There are variations on the 'Full-time Physiotherapist' category that result in a reduced rate.
If you are a physiotherapist with principal place of practice one of the following: private or public hospital/public sector/ community/aged care/education provider or the like setting;
May work up to an average of 4 hours per week in a private practice but excludes any person working in a contractor capacity (non-employee);
Your total hours of work:
If you work less than 18 hours per week, you will be eligible for a part-time rate (eg, 'Part-time physiotherapist', or 'Part-time government employed physiotherapist').
Your personal situation:
If you are a physiotherapist who is currently unemployed, on maternity/paternity leave or undertaking postgraduate study, you will select the applicable category under our Reduced Rate section.
