This was one of the best experiences I have had. At first, I was very hesitant to join the program due to financial concerns and a bit nervous about traveling outside the country. But it was one of the best investments. I heard about this program from a friend and wanted to give it a try myself as you get to be a lot more hands-on in Costa Rica than in the states. The therapists are very patient and treat you like family. I learned much more in three weeks than I had in three months as a PT technician. It was fascinating being with other students from across the US who are also interested in being physical therapists and they soon became family. Phil and Fernando are one of the best human beings in this world and will help you with anything they need! I highly recommend this program, and if you feel hesitant like I, just do it! Once is a lifetime experience!
