Physio therapy

Hello
My husband has been offered a job outside of Lucerne so we will be relocating to Switzerland in February. I have my doctorate of physical therapy and have been practicing for two years in the USA. Do you know the regulations to become a physio in Switzerland? Do you know of any companies that hire English speaking therapists? I would be willing to travel to Zurich.

Thanks

Re: Physio therapy

Do you speak German? If not, how will you communicate with your patients and let them know how to react if they do speak insufficient/no English.

Re: Physio therapy

This is true. I checked with the Red Cross which is deals with Polish physio diplomas and it is necessary to have German language skills at least on B2 level.
