Student testimonial – Shanice and Claudia did their internship in New Caledonia
“Our placement took place in Nouméa in the only rehab center specialized in Neurology of the island. The center is an amazing place that was created 6 years ago by a physiotherapist.
During the internship, we cared for our own patients: we had set them short terms goals every week, agree on these goals with the multidisciplinary staff. We also met the family of our patients during family meetings. It was a real professional experience where we felt trusted. We also had to make a presentation in front of the physio team on a subject on our choice with our tutors.
The travel in itself was such a beautiful experience: a place with wonderful landscapes, we swimmed with sharks, dolphins, turtles, we went whale-watching. But the most amazing part is about the people we met there…. They were nice, generous and willing to share their moments of their life with us. This goes for the patients, the colleagues, and the friends we made there. We are so thankful.
We loved everything about this placement, it is our dream to work in place like this.”
