The Child Life Department at the UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital offers practicum and internship programs to students interested in the field of child life and child development careers. The Child Life Internship Program is open to students considering careers in the child life profession. Students must have completed significant academic work in child development or child life studies in a bachelor or master degree program. Students also must have documented experience working or volunteering with children in a hospital under supervision of a child life specialist (minimum of 100 hours). This is a 15-week internship with two full rotations in different units and one week in pediatric prepare program working with a certified child life specialist (CCLS). A primary supervisor, assigned to each intern, will meet with you once a week to discuss goals, journal entries, his or her case study, and specific rotations and interventions. During your internship, you will focus on therapeutic play and child development in our programming spaces. Interns also work at bedside with a CCLS in preparation, procedural support and charting. The Child Life Practicum Program is open to college students enrolled in child development courses. This is a 12-week program that offers child development students the opportunity to interact with children in our playroom. Students are offered several learning opportunities to better understand the impact of hospitalization on child development.
