Academic Requirements

Becoming a practicing myotherapist requires the completion of one of the following qualifications:

BHSc (Clinical Myotherapy)

AdvDip (Myotherapy)

Training typically takes three years for either BHSc qualification or two years (including pre-requisite DipRM) for the AdvDip (Myotherapy). Increasingly, myotherapists are opting for degree level studies and in both cases, programs of entry with advanced standing exists for applicants who have completed related studies. Once completed graduates of these qualifications are eligible to join Myotherapy Association Australia and to qualify for Myotherapy provider status with private health insurers.

Choosing a Myotherapy Course Provider

Once you've decided to study Myotherapy be sure to invest time and effort to find a registered training college or University that will meet your expectations and ensure that you receive the quality education you're entitled to. For those prospective students who are considering studying the sub-degree qualification, the MySkills website contains valuable information to support selecting a quality course and understanding the obligations of the provider.
