In partnership with many local colleges and universities, the Child Life Department at Miller Children’s has an exciting internship program that allows students to have a hands-on experience in a real hospital setting. College students, who are usually majoring in Childhood Development, have the opportunity to “shadow” Certified Child Life specialists and see the day-to-day work. Students also learn about important educational pieces such as preparing children for hospitalization and learning about medical play.
