Description

There is a real shortage of skilled physical and occupational therapists in Cambodia. If you're currently training with at least one year of experience, recently qualified, or on a career break, you'll provide valuable treatment to babies, children, and adults with a wide range of physical problems.

The experiences you'll have on physical or occupational therapy internship abroad will give you a greater understanding of how professionals in the fields work in a developing country while providing valuable experience overseas.

All Physical Therapy interns in Cambodia must have completed at least one year of related studies or training by the time they join this project.

Interns with a year or more experience, but who are not yet fully qualified, work at the National Baby and Children's Center. Interns who are fully qualified and can commit to at least two months on the project work at the Veterans International Center.

Highlights

Physical Therapy interns work alongside one of the local physical therapists and assist children and adults with a variety of conditions including landmine victims, people who have suffered from polio, people with cerebral palsy, and children with club feet. Depending on your level of knowledge and experience you may be given your own patients to work with.

The center has an outdoor undercover treatment area where patients can practice walking up steps and on a variety of surfaces.
