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.
