Physiotherapy Association in Ireland

The primary association of physiotherapists, also called physical therapists, in Ireland is the Irish Society of Chartered Physiotherapists (ISCP). The ISCP is the sole professional regulating body for physiotherapy practitioners in the Republic of Ireland. The ISCP is a member of the World Confederation for Physical Therapy (WCPT) since 1988.1

According to the ISCP’s website, “undergraduate physiotherapy education programmes in the Irish universities (University College, Dublin; Trinity College, Dublin; the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland; University of Limerick) are accredited by the ISCP.” 2

After successfully completing the degree program at any of the accredited Irish universities, you may be eligible to become a member of the Irish Society of Chartered Physiotherapists (ISCP). If you obtained your physiotherapy degree outside Ireland, you may need to apply for individual qualification validation to become a member of the ISCP. Members of the ISCP can work in the Irish public health system. Some member physiotherapist may also be in the private sector.
