This thesis examines the challenges for professional practice, socialisation, and identity in Physiotherapy.

Physiotherapy has viewed identity as a fixed entity emphasizing coherence, continuity and distinctiveness. Socialisation has required the acquisition of a professional identity as one among several necessary assets‘ for novices. Yet how do physiotherapists come to be the physiotherapists they are?
