CANNING Vale physiotherapist WA Health Group have been awarded a $17,000 scholarship to attend the Curtin Growth Owner program.

Owners Chris Carr and Lennon Correia will attend the 12-month program run by the Curtin University’s Centre for Entrepreneurship and the City of Canning, which specialises in up-skilling small to medium business owners.

It combines a mixture of workshops, mentoring and peer learning to help sustain businesses economic development.

Mr Carr said the scholarship provided a great opportunity for them to continue to adapt to the changing face of physiotherapy.

“Physiotherapy is a dynamic profession – it is forever evolving based on up-to-date medical research,” he said.

“We are well positioned to advance the scope of physiotherapy and evolve the medical model to provide services that the consumer demands.

“Through this course, we will have the confidence to grow a successful health business and provide health services that the community need.”

He said he was already excited about the future of their business.

“Personally, I look forward to expanding the reach of physiotherapy and giving consumers better choice for their health concerns,” he said.

“The program will give me the skills to get out of the treatment room and advance the profession in the direction I believe it should head.”
