If you are interested in the physio life of ESP alumni in the UK, this webinar is exactly what you need! Via this webinar we aim to have alumni share their experiences and strengthen the local network of ESP alumni in the UK! We will talk about the registration process, the NHS system, the position of physiotherapy, the impact of Brexit and Covid and also internship possibilities!


Anthony Brightwell

Anthony (Ant) graduated from ESP in 2010 and gained great physio experience in The Netherlands afterwards. Ant moved back to the UK and now – 12 years after graduation – he developed himself both as a physiotherapist and as a clinic manager of Spectrum. Ant is happy to chat about his pathway following ESP and also about what it is like to work in the UK private sector. As he is also excited to become an ESP clinical instructor in the future, we will also explore the internships options for ESP in the UK…

In her talk she will share her experiences as a truly global physio from ESP…
