The Edward and June Prein Family Music Therapy Program is pleased to offer a music therapy internship. We strive to offer students a wide variety of experiences within the hospital setting, as well as a solid understanding of the music therapy profession.
Our 1,040-hour internship is offered in two sessions, starting in May and August. Students will receive hands on experience to prepare them for success in the field of music therapy. Along with the significant time spent observing and conducting music therapy treatment, the student will also complete reading and writing assignments, attend in-services and participate interdisciplinary rounds. The internship is a full-time experience (40 hours a week) and requires applicants to have completed all coursework in a music therapy bachelor’s or master’s degree program at an accredited university. Please see the internship application for further requirements.
