Therapy abroad

Had the most rewarding and amazing time! Learned so much and the accommodations were great! Would definitely do it again! They provided opportunities to explore the beautiful country of Belize and took us to the best local spots to eat and shop. The family and staff at the hotel were very friendly and welcoming. They made sure we had everything we could need and some. The breakfast and lunch provided was absolutely delicious. They provided options for people with dietary restrictions I loved every moment and can’t wait to come back and visit!

Physical Therapy Study Abroad

This trip was an excellent learning experience; we were able to see a great variety of patients in a large age range. This really helped to challenge me as a future Physical Therapist to be adaptable to the lifespan of conditions. I also enjoyed taking a tour of San Ignacio and learning more about the food and culture of Belize that I did not know before going on this trip. The only thing I would change is I wish we had a little more leisure time to continue exploring and understanding the culture to better understand our patients and their lives.

Belize- Physical Therapy

This trip was an unforgettable experience!! As a physical therapy students we had the opportunity evaluate and treat patients almost every day of the trip. We were able to work with many diverse patient populations and age ranges (age 2 -99 years old). We also were able to visit Mayan ruins, have a pool day, and explore the city of San Ignacio! The therapy abroad program ensured to teach us about the rich culture in Belize and even invited a local physician to teach us about the health care system in Belize! I would not hesitate to recommend this program!

  • Amazing learning experience
  • Great housing
  • Amazing people, everyone we encountered was so welcoming and kind!

Therapy Abroad-Belize

We had an amazing trip with Therapy Abroad's Belize Physical Therapy student service trip. They were very supportive and the students had an amazing experience treating geriatrics, pediatrics, and people of all ages. Hode's Place was an excellent place to stay, eat, and socialize. The town of St. Ignacio had plenty to do during our down time. We were there a week and had 2 days of travel, one day of sightseeing (Mayan ruins, pool, shopping at the market) 3 and a half days of patient care with mornings at Octavia Waight nursing home and afternoons running a patient clinic out of Hode's Place conference rooms and offices. The program did a great job of cultural education and education re: Belize's healthcare system and how it was different than than ours.

  • Great support from Therapy Abroad Staff, Hode's staff.
  • Well rounded exposure of patients of all different diagnoses and ages.
  • Transportation was taken care of and communication was excellent.
  • Hot, we were there during their hot season and it did not dissapoint on the heat!
  • I would love to bring more equipment next time (a treatment table, manual BP cuff, pre fab AFOs, things from the Amazon wish list).
  • Did I say HOT? LOL. We adjusted to the heat, but bringing light and wicking clothing would be helpful.

Best trip ever!

This was such an amazing trip! I loved being able to do therapy with individuals from Punta Gorda. Everyone was so kind and welcoming there and I felt like I learned a lot! There was a good balance between doing therapy and having free time. I throughly enjoyed learning about a new culture and understanding how different therapy is in PG in comparison to the U.S. Also, the supervisors were amazing and very knowledgeable.
I loved all of the cultural immersion experiences we had during the trip. It would have been nice to have a bit more time at Bocawina National Park to swim in the waterfalls or spend a bit more time at Coconut row!

  • Gaining therapy experience with all ages
  • Strengthening friendships and making memories
  • Loved trying new cultural foods

SLP Belize Program

Such a fun trip to Belize! I loved being immersed into the culture and trying new food! It was a good balance of providing therapy/working, while also exploring and having free time. The supervisors were so nice and helpful and knowledgeable about Punta Gorda. Housing was very nice and I loved rooming with the whole group because it brought us so much closer. There wasn’t a single activity that I didn’t enjoy. If anything, I wish we would have spent more time at Bocawina National Park, but otherwise the trip was amazing!

  • Providing therapy in a new place
  • Building connections with friends
  • Great experiences

Belize Spring break

This was an incredible experience and I am so thankful for therapy abroad for coordinating and supporting us along the way. I can not say enough good things about the staff, resources and support! Every excursion was amazing and the food was delightful. Everyone was welcoming, kind and eager to take us in. I felt like I was at home and I will definitely be coming back in the future. Therapy abroad made me catch the travel bug in the best way possible. I recommend this group to anyone and everyone!

Belize Spring Break

Therapy abroad in Belize was an amazing way to spend my spring break!! It provided so much hands on experience as well as some really fun excursions! Our therapy experience was in all age ranges giving us the opportunity to see different populations. I especially enjoyed visiting the adults at Octavia Waight. They were full of energy and were excited to tell us about their life in Belize. Everyone who guided us throughout the week was very nice and helpful. I would love to go back and do it all again!

  • Really fun excursions
  • Hands on experience
  • Amazing food
