A group of students in the University of New England’s Doctor of Physical Therapy (D.P.T.) and Master of Science in Occupational Therapy (M.S.O.T.) programs recently returned from a springtime trip to Guatemala, where they toured clinical facilities and adaptive equipment manufacturers, all while taking in the joy and wonder of education done abroad.
The trip was no ordinary spring break. The group of eight students and three faculty glided into La Aurora International Airport on March 10 and spent the next seven days meeting with local providers and patients and learning about adaptive therapy practices in the Central American nation.
