Introduction: • The Australian Physiotherapy Council (APC) examines entry level physiotherapy programs in Australia to ensure key practice thresholds are fulfilled. • The Physiotherapy Board of Australia (PhysioBA) & The Physiotherapy Board of New Zealand (PBNZ) have established self-directed learning & reflective practice as threshold competencies to ensure life long learning. • An overarching focus of clinical education for heath professional students is practical learning. • However, practical learning alone is inadequate for producing health professionals that are flexible, self-aware & understanding of alternate perspectives. • Critical self-appraisal is widely recognised as a method of analysing practical performance and reinforcing perishable skills. • Critical reflective practice promotes complex thought processing to assist individuals with effective management of dynamic situations and environments.
