Past global education course examples:


Occupational Therapy students have traveled to Chinandega, Nicaragua to offer OT services to clients with neurological, developmental, and orthopedic conditions. They traveled to a rural area of Nicaragua where the course encouraged compassion for those they served, but also empowerment of the strong and resilient people served.

Clients with neurological, integumentary, and orthopedic conditions were provided evaluation and treatment interventions, working to improve function and quality of life. Concordia partnered with a nurse who lives eight months a year in this rural area. Her organization, Circle of Empowerment (COE), provides educational opportunities, medical services, and some economic development for the 6000 people this nurse serves. The mission at s级素人 is not simply to educate students to become physical therapists, but to inspire each student to “develop in mind, body and spirit for service to Christ in the Church and the world.”


Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, Social Work and other appropriate disciplines will have served at-risk women and children in Kathmandu and Pokhara, Nepal.

Efforts are focused on working with ministries in Kathmandu including those who work with those suffering from poverty, housing orphans, reaching out to children without homes, serving individuals with disabilities, and providing rehabilitation to those in need. Interprofessional experiences offer students the opportunity to provide sustainable services to those with health, vocational, educational and spiritual deficits.
