Attention: Candidates

We anticipate hosting interns for the Fall 2015 semester. Thank you!

The Child Life internship program at All Children's Hospital is designed for undergraduate students at the end of their academic program, but graduate students are also welcome to further develop their clinical skills in this dynamic program. Child life internships provide clinical development through a systematic learning experience centered on Child Life competencies. 

The  internship is highly structured and provides multiple opportunities for learning.  Interns should have no other commitments during this internship due to the extensive nature of this experience.

Our internship sessions are consistent with the recommendations from the Child Life Council and thouroughly model and compliment the curriculum set forth by the CLC.

How to Apply

Due to the large amount of applications received, all applications must be received at All Children's Hospital by the application deadline set forth by the Child Life Council internship scheduling recommendations. We recommend requesting delivery confirmation to ensure timely delivery to our institution as late applications will be returned to sender. Thank you for understanding.
