How to work in Australia?
Step 1 (for foreigner)
Be sponsored by a clinic in order to apply for a work VISA. The clinic should help you take care of the process.
In order to apply for the general registration with the Osteopathy Board of Australia, you first need to do a desktop assessment to determine if you are eligible for the Standard Pathway (unrecognised diploma) or the Competent Authority Pathway (recognised diploma).
In the Standard Pathway you will be required to pass a written exam, an Online practical assessment, a Practical clinic exam and an open book exam (OBE)
In the Competent Authority Pathway, you will be required to pass the Open Book Exam (OBE) and will need to go through Supervised Practice under provisional registration.
Step 5 (optional)
Both Pathways will require you to pass an English certification (e.g. IELTS) if English is not your primary language or if you didn’t study at least 5 years in English.
