The Rehabilitation & Recreational Therapy (RRT) program at FIU consists of two different types
of fieldwork placements: LEI 4940 (Fieldwork in RRT) and LEI 4941 (RT Internship).
Rehab Track Students:
• LEI 4940 & LEI 4941 are NOT required
• LEI 4940 can be taken as an elective (3 or 6 credits)
Recreational Therapy Track Students:
• LEI 4940 – 6 credits – REQUIRED
• LEI 4941 – 12 credits – REQUIRED
Fieldwork & Internship Sites
All fieldwork and internship locations must be approved by the RRT internship coordinator
before the experience begins. The internship coordinator offers several ‘Orientation Meetings’
every semester to review the steps to obtain a placement and all the requirements that must
be met by the student.
FIU has a list of sites that have accepted RRT students in the past. FIU requires an affiliation
agreement with every agency that accepts a student for a fieldwork or internship placement.
The affiliation agreement is a legal contract that has to be approved by both the agency and
FIU’s legal counsel. It is important to note that students are responsible for finding and securing
their own placement and are not guaranteed to complete rotations in their preferred location,
city or setting.
