What are we looking for?

At Toucan Abroad, we take a lot of factors into consideration while reviewing applications, but more than anything, we are looking for candidates that are genuinely excited about a unique opportunity to explore the PT field in a new culture and appreciate all aspects of what that entails. It is an experience where you will learn alongside new PTs, meet new people, eat new food, speak a new language, and be pushed out of your comfort zone, in the best way possible. 

Does this sound like you?

  • Passionate about physical therapy

  • Professional outlook and strong work ethic

  •  Adventurous

  • High moral character

  • Open-minded with a positive attitude

  • Team player

  • Fun

If you match the characteristics above, then Toucan Abroad may be the perfect fit for you.  It is important to be honest, but also to highlight these traits through concrete examples and experiences in your application.  While GPA and academic history is important, we really value applicants that demonstrate a good personality match for the program to provide the best experience for yourself, other interns, and our therapists.
