Projects Abroad has over 20 years practice in collaborating with medical professionals. We are also experienced in working with both physiotherapy students and their universities to ensure that you have a placement overseas that will provide a rich and rewarding experience of the country and physiotherapy project. Projects Abroad arranges your accommodation, meals and insurance and our in-country staff are well equipped to support you and make sure your time overseas is a success.

Planning your Elective Overseas

Our elective placements are available in developing countries around the world. This is the basic checklist for a Physiotherapy Elective placement.

  • Clear daily timetables
  • Clearly modularised programme
  • Well-qualified supervisor
  • Interpreters available when needed
  • Links with local primary care
  • Opportunity to see traditional medicine (if applicable)
  • Great local food and accommodation
  • Enjoyable social environment

Taking your Elective Placement in Physiotherapy with Projects Abroad

Your experience as a Physiotherapy Elective student overseas will be a worthwhile one. You could find yourself placed in one of a variety of different establishments, such as a hospital, clinic, day care centre or residential home. You could work with children with physical disabilities or people requiring rehabilitation after injuries.

We also have placements that work with adults experiencing a range of conditions including stroke victims, accidents or congenital problems. Whatever your specialism, Projects Abroad can help you choose the right placement to support your studies.

Depending on where you choose to take your elective, you may have the opportunity to take part in outreach projects. Here you could go into communities, school or orphanages and run workshops and treat people who would otherwise not have access to this care.

Our in-country staff are experienced in ensuring your placement and experience fulfils the criteria of your elective module. They will work with you before you arrive to ensure you are happy with your placement choice. You will have a dedicated trained supervisor who will be on hand to discuss case studies and answer any questions you have regarding physiotherapy in their country and establishment.

If you are not an elective student or would rather take part in our regular Physiotherapy projects, please go to our Physiotherapy Projects page.

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 058-7821521.
