Child Life Opportunities for Students

  • Child Life Internship Opportunities

    A child life internship program is intended for college seniors, master’s degree students, or college graduates with backgrounds and experience in child development, education, psychology, or related fields.

  • Child Life Practicum

    Practicum students are seen as helping us to fulfill this mission side by side while caring for our St. Jude patients. Our philosophy continues as intern- ready students leave our program and begin their own careers continuing to support children as experienced, knowledgeable, and confident professionals.

  • Child Life 101

    The St. Jude Child Life Program offers a half-day educational session of the Child Life role in a hospital setting for current and future child life students.

  • Commonly Asked Questions About the Child Life Profession

    Due to the high volume of requests for Child Life Specialist interviews for numerous college classes, we have created this central link to provide the timeliest responses available to as many students as possible.
