Volunteer Abroad: International Occupational Therapy Internships with Projects Abroad

Medicine & Healthcare, Occupational Therapy - Occupational Therapy in Bolivia

Occupational therapy students traditionally have a great deal of variety in their medical internships while completing their studies. How do you make yourself stand out from the crowd and prove that you're up to an even bigger challenge? Choosing to volunteer abroad with us on an Occupational Therapy internship will give you a great deal of international work experience as you provide support to our colleagues in the developing world.

Whether you are a trained professional looking for a worthwhile and exciting way of using your annual leave, a student searching for something relevant to do on your summer break or an undergraduate organizing an overseas elective, you will have a valuable role to play in one of the hospitals, clinics or centers that we work with.

Volunteering Abroad on a Occupational Therapy Internship

Medicine & Healthcare, Occupational Therapy - Occupational Therapy in Moldova

As an Occupational Therapy volunteer, you are sure to be in great demand. Occupational therapy is something of a luxury, unique to western health systems that hospitals and other organizations in the developing world could never hope to afford. Health centers, orphanages and other projects are often very poorly resourced, and lack trained staff with the critical knowledge and skills to help their patients ease back into daily life.

Our rewarding Occupational Therapy programs enable you to help sick or disabled children and adults to lead as normal lives as possible. Rehabilitation is vitally important for any productive community, but is often overlooked due to the lack of money available for investment in all but critical care. Occupational Therapy courses are rarely available in many of the countries where we have medical internships, so your skills are sure to be appreciated!

These international medical internships are designed to provide a challenge to those who already have some experience or a worthwhile volunteer experience for those wishing to take their Occupational Therapy elective abroad. If you want to prove that you can think outside the box to create imaginative solutions to problems in a country where the facilities are much more basic than at home, then these projects are for you.

Whether you are working alongside physical therapists on an HIV project in Ethiopia, helping design new bathrooms at a home for mentally handicapped people in Bolivia, or running a summer camp for people in wheelchairs to adapt to their surroundings in Moldova, you will take home a great deal of international medical experience. You will add something really striking to add to your resume and plenty of memories of working with colleagues in a remarkably different culture.
