Registered Allied Health Professional

Registration of allied health professionals (AHPs) in Singapore is governed by the Allied Health Professions Act 2011.  AHPs who are regulated are the Diagnostic Radiographers, Occupational Therapists, Physiotherapists, Radiation Therapists and Speech-Language Therapists.

All AHPs must be registered with AHPC and issued with a Practising Certificate (PC) before they can practise as an AHP in Singapore.

The following categories of AHPs are required to be registered with the AHPC and have a valid practising certificate prior to being able to start work in their respective allied health professions:

  1. All new entrants who are seeking jobs in Singapore; 
  2. All experienced entrants who have working experience overseas but do not have any prior practice experience in Singapore; and 
  3. All entrants who are not registered with AHPC and are returning to practise the profession in Singapore.

All applicants are required to submit their registration application via the Professional Registration System (PRS).  Please click here for the Registration Application Steps/Guide.  

It is an offence to practise as an allied health professional in Singapore without registration and a valid practising certificate.
