Recreational Therapy and Child Life Clinical Education

Fellowships in Recreational Therapy and Child Life are one year in duration and run from July 1-June 30. Recreational Therapy fellows are required to be certified through NCTRC and licensed through NCBRTL prior to start date. To qualify for a Child Life Fellowship position you must be certified through the Child Life Council and the the Child Life Certifying Committee.

Since 1956, students have benefited from clinical internships in the Department of Recreational Therapy.

Graduate and undergraduate internships are offered in cooperation with North Carolina affiliated colleges and universities only.

To be considered for an internship, applicants must meet the coursework requirements for certification and licensure before the anticipated internship start date.

Please ask your Internship Coordinator to contact Kristel Maes if you are interested in a Recreational Therapy or a Child Life Internship.
