During the 14-week Recreational Therapy Internship, you have a primary staff supervisor. However, the staff certified therapeutic recreation specialists and the recreational therapy aides share their expertise upon request or have educational roles to fulfill with the intern.
You have access to these individuals throughout your training with the opportunity to learn directly from some of today's best recreational therapists. Additional community-based experiences also provide learning opportunities.
Visiting professors and lecturers
A hallmark of higher education excellence is the breadth and depth of information and experience provided to students by faculty and visiting experts. Many prominent professors visit Mayo Clinic each year to lecture on their areas of medical and scientific expertise.
As a student of Mayo School of Health Sciences, you are encouraged to learn from these valuable resources by attending all conferences, lectures and seminars prepared for students, residents, fellows and consulting staff.
