just to say i work in the uk and began the process of finding work in the usa last year. To my amazement things have changed in the USA and physios were no longer a sort after profession. My governing body said it would be very hard for a foreign physio to get into america and would have to do it off their own back.They said the only country that still was open to physio's was New Zealand. All usa locum companies have also ceased to exist.
Contact your governing body and see what they say.

I m a 23 year old female physiotherapist from Sweden, graduated 2000
from the University of Lund in Sweden. I am currently employed at Blekinge
hospital as the only lung and COPD expert, working with the ICU and the
lungmedical ward. I m very interested in being able to work in California (or
America in general). I dont really understand everything that I need to know to
be able to do so. I guess there s a lot of things to prepare! Is someone able
to guide me in any way? Perhaps give me some tips on the fastest and easiest
way. I would love to have everything done before next summer. I am coming to
California this summer to look around and get a feel for the job market. I m
hoping to be able to move to California nextyear and work there for a couple of
years. I want to get in contact with someone from Sweden who has done what I m
about to do or someone who knows how to do it!
Thank you so very much in advance!
