Internship is an important part of the RRT degree, especially for students in the Recreational Therapy track. There are two types of internships (Internship I & Internship II). Please review the internship requirements and options for the two tracks below:
- Rehabilitation Track students: Internship is NOT required. Internship I is recommended for students to take as an advising-approved elective.
- Recreational Therapy Track students: Internship I AND Internship II are required.
All internship locations must be approved by the internship coordinator before the internship begins. The internship coordinator offers several ‘Internship Orientation Meetings’ every semester to review the steps to obtain an internship and the requirements to complete a placement.
Please note that the list below is not a list of ALL the possible internship opportunities that exist; it just includes agencies with which FIU is currently affiliated. We add new agencies every semester.
