The New U Weekly Program is a 12-week weight loss program designed for obese children from 11-18 years old. Each week, the patient and their parent/support person attend a nutrition lecture for 30 minutes followed by 60 minutes of physical activity. In addition, they meet with other members of the team (physicians, surgeons, psychologists, dieticians) during regular office visits.
As an intern, you would be involved in leading the exercises, conducting patient interviews and doing goal setting with individual patients. You would also have the opportunity to participate in research, data collection and program design. The internship hours are Monday (at Franklin Park Conservatory) and Tuesday (in Westerville) evenings from 5p-8:30p with some additional research/data collection/program design hours available at flexible times based on student need and availability. Candidates for the internship need no specific qualifications other than an interest in a health care/fitness field. Coupled with our truly unique patient population, this multi-dimensional internship will allow you to implement classroom learning in a real world setting.
