Thank you for your interest in our Clinical Education Programs. 

Recreational Therapy Internships are 14 weeks in duration and are offered in all of our service areas which are Oncology, Burn Center, Psychiatry, Rehabilitation, and Pediatrics. Clinical supervision is provided by an LRT/CTRS who meets the requirements for certification by NCTRC and for licensure by NCBRTL. To be considered for an internship, applicants for these internships must meet the coursework requirements for certification and licensure.

Our most frequently asked question:
       Q-Do you offer child life internships (independent of Recreational Therapy requirements)?
       A-We offer Recreational Therapy internships in pediatrics. This internship experience may meet the requirement for child life certification if the Recreational Therapy internship supervisor meets the specific qualifications of the Child Life Certifying Committee.

Recreational Therapy and Child Life Clinical Fellowships are available in Psychiatry and Pediatrics. Everyone applying for a fellowship position will need to be licensed by the North Carolina Board of Recreational Therapy by their fellowship start date of July 1.  Deadline date for submitting applications is April 1 each year.
