Work the World

Work the World specialises in creating customised overseas physiotherapy placement in Cambodia, Vietnam, Ghana, Tanzania, Zambia, Peru, Mexico, Nepal, Sri Lanka, and The Philippines. Our destinations provide unique learning experiences in healthcare systems across the developing world.

We offer amazing opportunities to work with local physiotherapists to learn unique approaches to low-resource healthcare. In an unfamiliar healthcare system, you will learn how local specialists create treatment plans with extremely limited, often hand-made or improvised rehabilitation equipment. You'll also use, develop, and acquire skills when adjusting to new practices. 

Work the World’s placement planning and support service helps you avoid the pitfalls of trying to organise a placement by yourself. This gives you the safety, security, and peace of mind that comes with 24/7 support, and clinical supervision.

While overseas, you’ll live in one of Work the World’s spacious, social, and secure private houses. Living with other students from a range of countries and healthcare backgrounds creates an atmosphere of friendship and camaraderie like nowhere else. You’ll enjoy meals freshly prepared each day by in-house chefs, as well as the now famous weekly barbecues.

Free language lessons in the house will help you communicate and interact with patients more effectively to get the most out of your placement.

Your clinical experience runs from Monday to Friday, leaving your evenings and weekends free for exploration and adventure. Work the World’s expert in-country teams will offer tips for sightseeing and trips that you can take whilst you’re away. You could go on safari in the Serengeti, trek to Everest Base Camp, sunbathe on tropical beaches, and explore ancient mountain temples.
