We have many years of experience which has helped us mold the perfect elective for our students. As a physiotherapy electives student you will find yourself working in a variety of places with a diversity of medical cases. You will likely get to work with children with physical disabilities, some who have never before received medical care, people recovering after an injury, or adults suffering from an array of conditions, such as stroke victims, accidents or congenital problems. A large array of problems will make sure you get as much experience as possible.
A common injury in our destinations is burns, as most use gas cookers that can explode. The amount of road accidents are also on the rise. You may also come across diseases that are now rare in the U.K, the U.S and Australia, such as polio, clubfoot and leprosy. Regrettably expenses, distances and absence of education in under supplied countries mean that outpatients commonly come in with ailments that have reached a crucial stage and are in dire need of help. This experience will undoubtedly teach you a new set of skills and improve your perception on how afflictions advance.
