During the 14-week Recreational Therapy Internship, you will have a primary staff supervisor. However, the staff Certified Therapeutic Recreation Specialists (CTRS) and the recreational therapy aide will share their expertise upon request or have educational roles to fulfill with the intern.
You will 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 will also provide learning opportunities.
A hallmark of higher education excellence is the breadth and depth of information and experience provided students by the faculty and visiting experts. Many prominent professors visit Mayo Clinic to lecture on their areas of medical and scientific expertise each year. As a student of Mayo School of Health Sciences, you are encouraged to attend all conferences, lectures and seminars prepared for students, residents, fellows and consulting staff.
