As Christian healthcare professionals, many of us will consider the option of using our training overseas to serve underprivileged populations. Even if we are willing to go, there are many barriers we face that may seem insurmountable and discourage us from pursuing this type of mission work, especially when we are just starting out in our profession. For professionals in allied health, there are even fewer resources and opportunities available to us than what medical professionals have. In this presentation, we will explore modern-day concerns for entering the medical mission field, opportunities available to allied healthcare professionals, and what an overseas therapy practice can look like: all filtered through the lens of an occupational therapist's recent, real-life experiences serving abroad.
