Hi,I am currently studying Physiotherapy within the UK, and was a bit confused about the band system. When I graduate, what band would I be in, 5 or 6?Also, I am quite set on a speciality that I want to go in to right away (amputations), how would I go about that? Would I have to do rotations first? Is there a fast track way of specialising?

Many thanks

You would go in as a band 5. You would be very unlikely to be able to specialise straight into amputees. I did it as a junior rotation, but it was only a static choice at band 7 level. Except for a few specialist institutions, this would be the norm - i.e. you may get a band 6 static amputee rehab post in an army rehab centre, but very unlikely in the nhs. I enjoyed my rotations in amps too - did them as a B5 and a B6.
