| Reciprocal Recognition News from Finland
The member organisations from Finland (SOMTY) have announced that they will join the other MOs that will accept all graduates of IFOMPT approved OMPT programmes as OMPT specialists within their organisations if a graduate meets the country’s registration requirements. This is essentially expanding the concept of “reciprocal recognition” to “Universal Recognition” of the skills, knowledge, and expertise of physical therapists trained in IFOMPT approval programmes.
|IFOMPT Taskforce on Membership Qualifications
In response to suggestions from several IFOMPT Delegates and Advisory Groups, the Executive Committee has put together the attached Terms of Reference (TOR) for a Taskforce on Membership Qualifications. The intent is that this task force will study issues related to attainment and maintenance of IFOMPT membership and make recommendations to the Executive Committee and the Delegate Assembly in time to take potential actions at the 2020 meeting in Melbourne. This should allow time for much discussion and consideration among the Delegates prior to the General Meeting. Please review the TOR and consider nominations of qualified candidates.
Nominations must please include a letter of interest with a description of how the nominee's experience and credentials can assist the task force in the accomplishment of their charges and must be received by the IFOMPT Executive Director, Ingrid Du Toit, by March 12, 2018. Self-nominations are also accepted.
