Nationwide Children's Sports Medicine has two internship programs available for college undergraduates.
The Athletic Training Internship prepares college students that are currently enrolled in a CAATE accredited university, for the various roles that an Athletic Trainer may have in the outreach and clinical settings. The internship will also provide the student athletic trainer with the opportunity to gain hands on experience, and a very real world working experience in the field of athletic training.
The New U Internship works with members of the New U Evening Program offered by the Center for Healthy Weight and Nutrition. The New U evening program is a 12 week weight loss program designed for obese children from 11-18 years old. Interns will be involved in leading exercises, conducting patient interviews and doing goal setting with individual patients. They will also have the opportunity to participate in research, data collection and program design.
The Play Strong Internship works with patients in the Play Strong program offered by Sports Medicine. The Play Strong program is a 12-week physical activity intervention designed for patients in need of behavior change related to physical activity habits. These children and adolescents, ages 11-18 years old, may be living with or recovering from chronic conditions such as cancer, diabetes, obesity and heart disease or simply struggle with weight. Interns will assist with the administration, development and implementation of the Play Strong program. They will also have the opportunity to participate in research, data collection and program design.
