Occupational Therapy Elective Placements in Vietnam

Occupational Therapy Elective in Vietnam

Taking your Occupational Therapy Elective in Vietnam will give you valuable experience and a learning platform in hospitals or rehabilitation centres. You will work alongside qualified and dedicated staff, and help treat patients experiencing a wide variety of conditions that require occupational therapists.

Projects Abroad are experienced with elective students and will liaise with your university to ensure your placement meets the requirements of your module. Our in-country staff are on hand for all your pre-departure planning and throughout your stay.

You will also have a dedicated supervisor, a local occupational therapist, who will support you throughout your placement. Your supervisor will answer your questions and discuss specific cases with you to support your studies. They are keen for you to learn and are receptive to enthusiastic students. By integrating well into the department, you will learn a lot about occupational therapy in a developing country.

Your Occupational Therapy Placement

You will be placed in the Occupational Therapy Department of hospitals or rehabilitation centres depending on your own interests. These patients require therapy to help them carry out basic daily tasks, and improve mobility and independence.

You will live with other Projects Abroad volunteers in shared accommodation. There is so much to explore and discover in Hanoi and you will get to know other volunteers.

You can join the Occupational Therapy Electives project in Vietnam for two or three weeks if you don't have time to join us for four weeks or more. Please be aware that the number of departments you can experience may be limited and you may not be able to make the same impact as someone here for a longer period.

Please be aware that most universities have deadlines by which time your Elective application paperwork must be completed. If your university needs information on the hospital or clinic in which you will be placed, or requires forms to be signed by your project supervisor, we strongly advise completing our application form at least one month before this deadline. We can only provide this detailed information once you have applied and been accepted onto an Elective placement with us.

If you have any questions please call us on 021 234 8002.
