Contributions can be made informally as an individual or formally as part of a structured process:

You could also join one of our content development projects where we guide you in the content that we are currently developing on the site.

Content Development Projects
Educators have been running courses and assignments for their students in Physiopedia since 2009. Universities and colleges that provide physiotherapy and physical therapy education are invited to get involved with their students to contribute content to the Physiopedia website as part of an educational programme. This involves creating a structured environment for students to contribute content to the site as part of their education.
Similar to educational projects, clinics and professional organisations are invited to engage their staff and members in contributing to the Physiopedia content as part of formalised continuing education and professional development projects.
