A physical therapy volunteer at the National Rehabilitation Institute in Santa Ana would have the opportunity to work with patients with a vast number of neuromusculoskeletal disorders.
A rehabilitation and therapy volunteer would help with either physical therapy or speech therapy in elder care facilities, homes for the disabled, clinics and/or community outreach programs. Rehabilitation and therapy volunteer placements tend to require that volunteers are either qualified in their field or that they are current students with at least two years of studies completed.
Many current students of physiotherapy or speech therapy elect to use their experience overseas as a practicum component of their education. If this is something in which you are interested, please let us know the placement requirements that your institution would have in your application and our staff will make sure to send you a list of placements that would meet these criteria.
