Case Series Comparing Physical Therapy International Clinical Education Experiences in a Developed and Developing Country and Measuring Against Professional Standards and Guidelines

"With a growing vision for globalization and internationalization in higher education, a number of Commission on the Accreditation of Physical Therapy Education (CAPTE)–accredited physical therapist education programs across the United States have begun to routinely place their students at international sites for one of their full-time clinical education experiences in both developed and developing countries. The purpose of this article is to compare and contrast the physical therapy international clinical education experience in both the developed and developing country and compare the experiences to professional standards and guidelines."
