Where and when are ICIs available?

ICDR collaborates with the Department of Occupational Science & Occupational Therapy, Department of Physical Therapy and Department of Speech-Language Pathology to offer placements in 5 countries. For information about other placement opportunities, students should speak with the clinical education coordinator in their department.

Where does ICDR offer international clinical internships (ICIs)?

ICDR supports 5-10 week clinical internship opportunities for Occupational Science & Occupational Therapy (OS&OT), Physical Therapy (PT) and Speech-Language Pathology (SLP) students at five of our international sites. Internships are offered by ICDR’s international partners. These partnerships are stewarded and nurtured by ICDR-Groups.  Once a student has been selected for a particular ICDR site, they will be a given a site-specific Handbook. For general information on preparation for an ICI (e.g., visas, inoculations, and other helpful information) please check out the ICDR International Clinical Internship Handbook
