A stu­dent from the Euro­pean School of Phys­io­ther­apy in Am­s­ter­dam is un­der­tak­ing a 10-week work place­ment at Be­nen­den Hos­pi­tal.

Jor­dan De­hara, 21, from Ash­ford, is car­ry­ing out three in­tern­ship place­ments as part of his four-year phys­io­ther­apy course. Be­fore ar­riv­ing at Be­nen­den he worked at a hos­pi­tal in Malta for 10 weeks. His next place­ment is at a sports clinic in Am­s­ter­dam. He has pre­vi­ously worked with the Am­s­ter­dam rugby team.

Jor­dan, who has been work­ing closely with Be­nen­den Hos­pi­tal’s phys­io­ther­a­pists Shinu Varghese and Bri­die O’Lough­lin, said: “It is good to ap­ply my stud­ies and learn­ings to real peo­ple – I’ve found this is much more com­plex than what the books say. Also I’m en­joy­ing get­ting ex­pe­ri­ence of work­ing along­side other dis­ci­plines, with doc­tors nurses and health­care as­sis­tants.

“The ex­pe­ri­ence will help to pre­pare me to work as a phys­io­ther­a­pist once I have com­pleted my course.
