Volunteering overseas is as much about learning as it is about giving
Volunteering overseas is as much about learning as it is about giving. You will find Osteopathy takes on a new dimension and that you are required to be in much more of a primary care role than would ever be the case in the UK. It has the potential to take you out of your comfort zone and change you, both as a practitioner and a person. It is an unbelievable experience and an unparalleled way to meet locals and experience the culture in a way which is just not possible as a tourist. So whether as a challenge, continued professional development or a great excuse for an unforgettable holiday, the experience of working as an Osteopath overseas cannot be beaten.
The organization is in its infancy but is hoped to have two wings. First a forum to connect interested Osteopaths with oversea organizations and charities that accept Osteopathic Volunteers, secondly to assist in organizing oversea trips for British Osteopaths. The first trial project is due to run in Nepal this September with possible plans to expand into Sri Lanka and India later in the year.
If you are a charity or a volunteer and interested in joining this community please make contact here or follow comment with other friends via Facebook group.
