Program Details:
  • Program Leader: Josh Davies, Program Coordinator: Myotherapy & Remedial Massage 
  • Dates: 16th - 30th September 2017
  • Places Available: 25 places
The program is a cultural and treatment modalities exchange, with a strong focus on treating alongside local therapists within the community and students from other health programs. Students will have the opportunity to learn and exchange techniques from the local therapists and fellow students (intra and inter-disciplinary).
There will be 3 two-days health camps where the students will have the opportunity to treat people from local and surrounding communities.  These health camps will be in both rural and urban areas. The rural health camps may be at open-walled clinics using very basic equipment (camp beds, treatments tables & mats); and shifts may last for up to 12 hours. Be prepared for intense days in challenging conditions.  Your resilience will be tested at times.

There will also be treatments in the fully equipped clinic in urban Udaipur.  All assessments/treatments will be fully supervised by RMIT staff (and will contribute to your clinical WIL placements). Students will be encouraged to use all techniques and modalities from their studies, while incorporating new techniques learned on the intensive.  You will also be encouraged to communicate with fellow students (intra-disciplinary) and the other students from other health courses.

There may be a tour of the Taj Mahal and other local attractions in Udaipur (city of Lakes) pending costs.
