Internship in Therapeutic Recreation

We worked closely with the Alberta Therapeutic Recreation Association, employers, supervisors, and practitioners to develop a meaningful experience. Students will benefit from working with experienced supervisors, practitioners, allied health professionals, and researchers who will provide them with a first-rate experience. Such a partnership model fosters a learning culture that supports continuing professional development and lifelong learning for our students.  Below students will find important documents and links to guide them through the placement process.
