Abstract

The development of entrepreneurial activities in society is the basis of the progress and prosperity of a nation. Currently the development of the age of the community is at a productive age which requires a prime or fit body condition and at an elderly age with a history of decreased movement activity which results in a decrease in quality of life. These existing problems are business opportunities that can be solved by physiotherapists by creating, building or opening a creative and innovative form of physiotherapy service business or physiotherapy entrepreneurship. This study aims to observe entrepreneurial activities carried out by physiotherapists. Methods: this study uses a type of description taken from observations on 3 forms or models of business entities or physiotherapy entrepreneurship, in the form of: 1. independent clinics, 2. independent fitness training centers and 3. clinics in collaboration with doctors. Results: Based on the results of data searches and observations on the three physiotherapy entrepreneurial models, it can be seen the success of each entrepreneurial model. The independent clinic has a higher and higher level of difficulty, responsibility, creativity and innovation, while the clinical model that collaborates with doctors has a low level of difficulty with the division of responsibilities and has easier access to patients or clients compared to independent clinics. Conclusion: The model for implementing physiotherapy entrepreneurial activities can be carried out independently in the form of clinics, fitness centers or in collaboration with doctors. Physiotherapy entrepreneurial activities have a contribution in creating job vacancies, solving health problems, and improving the welfare of society and the country's economy.
