GROUND Asia Occupational Therapy program in Thailand invites students to visit a rehabilitation centre in the outskirts of Bangkok. They will work intensively to carry out treatment every day under the supervision of local staff and visiting faculty. They get the opportunity to properly identify each patient’s needs, provide intensive treatment, and also make progress observations on the patient. This activity also provides a challenge for students to act creatively and effectively because the facilities available may not be the same as their home country. In addition, the patient’s condition may vary so it challenges students to constantly be adaptive and be innovative.
