Student opportunities in Child Life and Expressive Therapies

Exploring the Child Life profession

To find out more information about the Child Life Profession (education requirements, related fieldwork, student resources, requirements for Certification), please visit the Child Life Council website at www.childlife.org.

If you are interested in gaining more experience working with children and families in a pediatric healthcare setting, please visit our Volunteer Services website for requirements and application information.

Due to patient confidentiality and infection control, we do not offer a Job Shadow experience with the Child Life program. We do offer a quarterly “Chat with a Specialist” to high school seniors and college students who are actively working towards a career in Child Life.

This session is offered on the second Wednesday during the months of January, April, July and October from Noon to 1 p.m.

  • Upcoming dates: April 11, 2018; July 11, 201 ; Oct. 10, 2018
  • If you are a high school senior or college level student actively pursuing a career in Child Life, please complete the interest form for “Chat with a Specialist”
  • If you have additional questions regarding the Interest Form or about the “Chat With a Specialist” session, please email childlife@chw.org
