Physical Therapy internships in Valencia, Spain, can be based at non-profit health centres, private clinics, wellness centres, or with local sports teams and athletes.
Due to the broad scope of this internship field, a customized approach is taken toward matching each intern to their best placement opportunity. Examples of internship activities may include (but may not be limited to):
- Assisting/observing/shadowing licensed physiotherapists
- Injury assessment and diagnosis
- Training and rehabilitation planning
- Assisting patients to perform prescribed exercises
- Assisting with therapies such as ultrasound, electrotherapy, acupuncture, and massage
- Contribute to activities related to research and teaching
Interns are required to follow the guidelines of their placement supervisor at all times and can expect to assist with patient care and evaluation, rehabilitation planning, and physiotherapy treatment sessions.
It is important to be prepared for a language barrier, as most patient interactions will be conducted in Spanish. Your supervisor will provide opportunities to debrief following sessions, ensuring you are able to follow the work as it is conducted.
