Physiotherapy Work Experience Abroad
This placement is available to physiotherapists of all levels. Whether you are a trained professional, studying at university or considering a career in physiotherapy, you will have a role to play. Projects Abroad will aim to tailor the placement to your abilities and previous experience.
As a volunteer your responsibilities will include assisting local physiotherapists in hospitals that are often poorly funded and understaffed. It is likely that the patients you see will have conditions that are fairly advanced and rarely seen in the developed world.
This placement is incredibly rewarding and benefits those who are most in need. You could find yourself working in a leprosy clinic in India, caring for disabled children in Nepal or working in a hospital in Ghana. In whichever country you choose to volunteer, you will learn a great deal about the practice of physiotherapy.
