The primary purpose of this study was to evaluate the impact of an international fieldwork experience in Ecuador on OT students through a mixed-methods approach. Results indicate that students felt more culturally competent, had transformed personally and professionally, and were more connected with one another after the experience. Programs should strongly consider engaging students in international experiences due to the positive impact it demonstrates.
