Child Life Services at Komansky Center for Children

Thank you for your interest in the Child Life internship and practicum at NewYork-Presbyterian Phyllis and David Komansky Children's Hospital. The goal of our programs is to offer Child Life interns a wide range of learning opportunities through which to develop clinical skills. During their internship experience, students will engage in enriching and thought provoking learning opportunities, which link theory to actual "hands-on" practices with children, youth and families. Our program will help clinically prepare students in skills that can be applied to any setting as a child life specialist.

We offer the framework and support necessary for interns to build independence in developing treatment plans thorough assessments, providing appropriate interventions, and creating unique programming for children and families. In addition, interns increase their skills and focus their learning through curriculum focus readings, seminars and relevant assignments.
