The West Coast University DPT International Program will provide students with the opportunity to learn about Physical Therapy abroad with the goal to acquire new knowledge, perspectives, and opportunities for personal and professional growth. Participants will travel abroad for two weeks and apply their learning in new settings, while attending conferences, lectures, and touring facilities in another health care system.
Participants will participate in the annual International Conference of Physical Therapy hosted by the Comillas Pontifical University School of Nursing and Physical Therapy, and participate in joint simulation and clinical activities with peers during the program and present teaching projects in the community. Additionally, students will learn about special topics about PT in Spain, tour various facilities, and learn more about Spanish culture.
Students will be required to participate in all pre-departure orientations during the Spring term.
