Eduglobal contracts with physical therapy programs. Request a copy of our standard contract in Word format for review by your risk management and legal teams. The Eduglobal contract can be revised within the limitations imposed by the Italian clinical facilities and can be made automatically renewable. The execution of a contract is required before applications for placement may be submitted.
Eduglobal Associates seeks to sponsor Italian internships jointly with physical therapy programs that desire an international experience for their students. Our goal is to offer a placement that matches the student's desired setting and time frame. After students are placed, our staff works carefully to assure that they have the necessary information to make the experience productive and enjoyable. We remain available throughout the internship to consult and intervene where necessary to maximize the clinical and cultural opportunities for each student.
Our placement process has three steps:
Use Eduglobal's one-page application to request a placement. A 500-word essay describing the applicant's goals for the internship is also required. The student and the ACCE/DCE fill out the application and forward it with the essay and a passport-type photo of the applicant to Eduglobal. Eduglobal accepts applications on three dates - February 15, April 15, and June 15 of the year prior to the requested placement. As an example, the application dates for 2018 placements are February 15, April 15, and June 15, 2017. Eduglobal forwards the applications to the Italian clinical sites and normally receives placement offers within one to two weeks. The ACCE/DCE is notified of the placement offers and informs the student. The student is given approximately one week to finally accept or reject the placement offer. A student who accepts a placement is then invoiced for Eduglobal's administrative fee, which must be remitted within 10 days as a condition for final placement approval.
Once a student has been finally approved for placement, Eduglobal assists with logistical arrangements. While students make their own flight arrangements, from three to six months in advance, Eduglobal is available to consult on routes and arrival/departure locations. Housing is arranged by Eduglobal after consultation with students regarding preferences. Eduglobal consults with students on ground transportation issues, as a vehicle is required for use on clinic days at all five host facilities.
