We have physiotherapy internships available for entry-level, current students and fully qualified physiotherapists. Experienced interns have the opportunity to be placed in a small physiotherapy center, and those still studying are able to assist in special needs primary school placements. Interns working in the primary school will be assisting local physiotherapists to provide individual attention for the children. The work at the physiotherapy center will be focused on treating neuromuscular problems, rheumatism, pain and pediatric problems using magnetic therapy infrared, ultrasound, massage and kinetic therapy. An understanding of intermediate Spanish is required. All interns who are not yet advanced Spanish speakers are strongly encouraged to take Spanish language lessons in addition to their internship program.
Intake dates for new interns are typically offered every Monday. The minimum duration requirement for Physiotherapy internship placements is a commitment of at least 4 weeks. Apply online to formally express your interest (it’s free and non-obligatory to apply) and – upon being accepted – register to confirm your internship on a Physiotherapy internship placement.
