Internships

St. Mary’s welcomes student interns in a variety of disciplines. Whether it is termed an “internship,” “clinical education,” “practicum,” “fieldwork” or “preceptorship,” the experience we offer is unique. Students become a part of the St. Mary’s family, and many keep in touch well after their internship has ended. Many of our staff completed internships here themselves. You will be a better clinician because of your affiliation at St. Mary’s and in turn, staff and residents will be better for having had you here.

If you have an interest in working with children with special needs, we encourage you to pursue an internship at St. Mary’s. For more information about internships in your discipline, contact the appropriate person below:
