Nationwide Children's Sports Medicine has two internship programs available for college undergraduates.
Pediatric Sports Medicine Athletic Training Internship
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.
Play Strong Internship
The Play Strong Intern works with patients within the Play Strong and New U Evening Programs offered by Sports Medicine and the Center for Healthy Weight and Nutrition. Patients in these programs are ages 5 and older and may be living with chronic conditions such as cancer, diabetes, heart disease, arthritis, chronic pain, and obesity. This internship is geared toward direct patient interactions where clinicians and interns work to support patients in an effort to provide positive lifestyle changes related to physical activity. Interns will be involved in leading group exercises, assisting with patient interviews & goal setting, as well as administrative tasks associated with the growth & improvement of these programs. Interns may also have the opportunity to participate in research, data collection and program design.
